By interviewing a wide cross section of New Yorkers, from a drug dealer to a banking executive, Gibson gets inside the varied ways people experience and perceive the transformation of neighborhoods by the influx of new wealth and new residents. What does gentrification look like where you live?

Your Call: How are urban farms changing cities?

Jun 17, 2015

  

On the June 17th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about urban agriculture. Eighty percent of the US population lives in cities, further from farms than ever, but more and more city dwellers are growing their own food on empty lots or in their backyards. The film Growing Cities examines this trend from the Bay Area to Detroit.  How are urban farms revitalizing communities and changing the way we eat? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
