Growing Cities Needs Help

This is your last chance to help local filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette with their quest to get their documentary Growing Cities aired on PBS. Their Kickstarter campaign is nearing its funding amount, but more is needed. Help these guys get the word out to the world about urban farming. Seriously, even $5 will help. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/growincities/growing-cities-lets-get-urban-farming-on-pbs
