"... And This Is My Garden" is an inspirational documentary film about the power of education to foster healthier lifestyles and to reconnect youth to the earth. The film follows the teachers and their students for a season of planting, harvesting, preserving, and ultimately celebrating the fruits of their labour at the Mel Johnson School annual harvest display and community feast. Sustainable, edible gardening addresses issues of Community Food Security, Empowerment, Environmental Improvement & Chronic Disease Prevention. Along the way, the students develop a sense of responsibility, pride and accomplishment, and engage their elders to work toward building healthier communities and towards growing a sustainable future. The film addresses the larger issues affected by this innovative school gardening project, which literally breaks new ground in education and has the potential to change the way we live.
