Movie: Truck Farm Posted on September 15th, 2011 by

Thursday, October 6 – 7:00 p.m. at the Treaty Site History Center

Filmmakers Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis transformed granddad’s ’86 Dodge into a traveling 20-member CSA. They planted between the wheel wells with arugula and tomatoes, parked the truck on a Brooklyn street, and waited for sun and rain to work their charms. When the first sprouts came up, Truck Farm was born. Subscribers received deliveries of produce, arriving via the mo-bile farm itself. Cheney and Ellis are also the Peabody Award-winning co-creators of “King Corn”, “Big River”, and “The Greening of Southie.” Truck Farm is the new 40-minute documentary about the urban farms taking root in America’s biggest city.
