Free Community Movie Matinee: Growing Cities
Diggin’ Shoreline presents the award-winning documentary, Growing Cities
Saturday, November 3 at Shoreline City Hall

Apple cider, organic popcorn and a movie with 16 awards to its name… what better way is there to spend a drizzly November afternoon? Doors open at 1:00pm with movie showings at 1:15pm and 3:00pm.

Meanwhile in the lobby until 4:30pm, visit the exhibits and discover ways to “grow where you are”.  Whether it be sprouts in a jar, herbs and veggies in a patio pot, a chicken coop, a community plot, or a large backyard garden… growing your own food is nutritious, fun and satisfying.

There will be kid-friendly activities and face painting, too. Bring your family and friends. Get advice and share expertise. Tell tales of your one tiny ripe tomato or that giant zucchini to folks like you who genuinely care!

Now back to the movie… In their search for answers, filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden, and backyard chicken coop at a time.

Join them as they discover that good food isn’t the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.
