After the LA riots the city gave the citizens of LA a plot of land in South Central LA to set up a community garden. Over 300 families used the land to grown organic produce to feed their families for over a decade, and were then given notice to vacate the land. This is about their fight to keep the land that the city sold back to the developer it was originally purchased from. This film shows how the community gardens changed their life for the better and you feel their heartbreak as their gardens are taken away.
