Screening of ‘The Garden’ and Post-Screening Discussion
Hinson Campus Center, Conference Rooms A&B.
5:00 – 7:30 p.m.

"The Garden" is an unflinching look at backroom deals, green politics, racial discord, money, poverty and power. At a moment when food, energy, and environmental crises confront us at every turn, "The Garden" serves as a powerful symbol of the larger world around us.

Stay for a panel discussion and breakout session with other film viewers to brainstorm on ways to improve our relationship to food and a healthy environment at De Anza.

Panel Members:
  • Kristin Jensen Sullivan, De Anza ES Department
  • Chris Lepe, De Anza ES Department
  • Mark Anthony Medeiros, Veggielution Urban Farming Project
  • Meghan Cole, Full Circle Farm

A living resources board, online and on campus, will be created from the information gathered through this event.

Co-sponsored by ICCE, GenerationEngage, Environmental Studies Department and DASB.
