Truck Farm

It's not just about urban gardening and real food, it's a movement, or shall we say "moving" and proof-positive that one can farm nearly anywhere, given the inspiration.

Metaphor aside, Truck Farm is a non-profit art and advocacy project developed in cooperation with Practical Farmers of Iowa. Take a pick-up truck, outfit the bed with drainage and soil, plant the seeds and watch them grow--all while taking it on the road and bringing information and fresh produce to residents of urban communities (specifically, NYC).

The Truck Farm documentary, from the film-makers who brought us King Corn, joins the tour and chronicles the development of the project and its outreach mission. Visit the site for excerpts.
