Can You Dig This? Screening & Panel

  • Auburn Avenue Research Library 101 Auburn Avenue Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30303 United States (map)

Join us for a FREE screening of Can You Dig This at the Auburn Avenue Research Library on Saturday, Feb 24. Doors open at 4:30. Guests must RSVP in advance.

"CAN YOU DIG THIS" follows the inspirational journeys of four unlikely gardeners, discovering what happens when they put their hands in the soil.

This is not a story of science and economics. This is a story of the human spirit, inspiring people everywhere to pick up their shovels and "plant some s#!t."

Register Here!

The film will be followed by a panel featuring Abiodun Henderson of Gangstas to Growers, Brennan Washington of Phoenix Gardens and Southern SARE, Wayne Swanson of Swanson Family Farms, Ahzjah Simons of Sevananda Natural Foods Market, and Sagdrina Jalal of Georgia Farmers Market Association. The panel will be moderated by emcee Tenisio Seanima of Nature's Candy Farms and Georgia Organics.

Everyone is also invited to participate in PLANT SOME S#!T Day on Sunday, Feb 25 by planting fruit trees in their yard or community garden, or by joining one of several community plantings around ATL. A sign up link to volunteer at a planting will be available soon.
