FMTV - Growing Cities

Growing Cities

Runtime: 92m 53s | Release date: 2013

This film features: Joel Salatin.

Growing Cities is a documentary film that examines the role of urban farming in America and asks how much power it has to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat. 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.

Hi Joseph, yes, absolutely! :) First, make sure that you plug your Chromecast device into your television. Depending on the device you are using to cast from, please follow the steps that are relevant to you: 1. Android Users - The FMTV app for Android has the chromecast feature built in! Simply download the app from the Google Play store, log in to your FMTV account, select the content you want to watch, and in the bottom right corner you’ll find the cast icon. If your Android device and Chromecast device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, your TV will appear in the list of devices to cast to. 2. Laptop or Computer Users - If you're not using Android, we highly recommend using a laptop or computer as this is the simplest and most reliable way to get casting! 👉 Open up a fresh tab on a Google Chrome web browser on your Computer. If you do not have Google Chrome, you can download here: https://www.google.com/chrome 👉 Login to your FMTV account at www.fmtv.com and select the video you'd like to watch. 👉 In the top right corner of your Google Chrome browser, select the menu. It will either appear as three dots in a vertical line, or a small arrow pointing up. A menu will appear. Click 'cast' from the menu. 👉 A menu should appear with the devices you can cast to. If your Chromecast is connected correctly to your TV, it will appear in the menu. Click your TV and away you go! Hope this helps 🙂 ~ Iris

I absolutely love this film! I find it very inspiring. I found the most inspirational person in this film is Jim Montgomery, who has prosthetic hands in order to be able to do things that most of us take for granted. You will be amazed what you are capable of doing if you think outside the box :)

Loved this film!!! I am originally from the Bay Area, and in our backyard in Daly City, we had a garden (though the soil was sandy) and some chickens. I loved working in the garden as a child. (We also had a small patch in the front yard area which was overflowing with a leafy spinach that my sister and frequently harvested for our family.) I am planning on having a garden again, once we relocate in the near future (a year or so). Currently, I am collecting my veggie/fruit scraps for my sister's garden. This film is inspiring and I recognized some familiar faces in the food/farm/garden movement.

We have grown food at home since I was 3. I am very thankful for this gift in my life. I will always find a way to grow food everywhere I live. My 2 year old daughter already loves gardens. She can't wait to water plants and go see if there is something new to pick and eat each day.
