Learning - April 17, 2010 "A Community of Gardeners"

Work-In-Progress Screening: "A Community of Gardeners"
Date: Saturday, April 17, 2010
Time: 2pm
Location: Arlington Central Library, 1015 N. Quincy Street, Arlington, Virginia

A work-in-progress screening of "A Community of Gardeners," produced by local filmmaker Cintia Cabib. The documentary explores the vital role of seven community gardens in Washington, D.C., not only as sources of fresh, nutritious food, but as outdoor classrooms, places of healing, centers of social interaction, and oases of beauty and calm in inner-city neighborhoods. The screening will be followed by a Q-and-A with Cabib.

The Arlington Career Center's student-built "Little Green House" mobile exhibit, made of recycled and environmentally friendly materials, will be on display outside Central Library during this event.

Call 703-228-6321 for more information.

This event is part of Arlington Reads 2010, featuring appearances by farmer and literary legend Wendell Berry and urban farmer/author Novella Carpenter.
