In a time when most food travels hundreds of miles to reach the table, "Plant This" gives us a look into an important alternative -- urban farming. The farmers showcased in this film are committed to growing food for their local community, however densely populated. Growing food on rooftops and on abandoned blocks, these farmers creatively re-purpose the urban landscape and invigorate their local food system. "Plant This" shows us how the work of these farmers helps heal our ecosystem and our earth.
