The Growing Food Project: a short documentary

There is a thriving energy of empowered local communities responding to food access & sustainability issues that aim to strengthen the way we produce & distribute local food.  Community food projects improve the way we eat, reconnect us with nature, build relationships between neighbours & enhance our food culture.


The Growing Food Project is a documentary exploring some of Melbourne’s urban agriculture practices & alternative food systems, particularly those existing in the city’s inner north. By documenting & telling these amazing stories, this short film will capture the possibilities and practical solutions that lie in people’s hands & strengthen our local food system.

The story so far...

This project has been a labour of love by a team of committed volunteers who spent the summer filming at various community gardens and local food initiatives.  Now, a big job of editing awaits!  So... a Pozible crowd funding campaign has launched to bring this film to life.   

Money raised from this campaign will go towards post-production & help pay someone do a brilliant job at it. Costs include: a professional editor, grading, sound design, sound mixing & other costs associated with entries to film festivals etc.   

Please support this project & help bring this film to life.  It would also be awesome if you could circulate this to your family & friends!  

Cheers to a fair, sustainable & resilient food system!  Let's make this happen!
