Dock Street Hosts Urban Roots 1st Philly Screening
Tuesday, September 20th at 8:30pm – Urban Roots is the newest documentary from Tree Media. Produced by Leila Conners (The 11th Hour) and Mathew Schmid and directed by Mark MacInnis. The film follows the urban farming phenomenon in Detroit, spearheaded by a group of local farmers taking action to rebuild Motown into “GrowTown.”
Urban Roots is a timely, moving and inspiring film that speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future.
Dock Street is excited to present this film and eager to support the cause. Dock Street is donating $1 per beer sold during the screening. The money will go to the Tree Foundation which works to put farms in local schools.
The screening is free! So come enjoy delicious beer and pizza and see sustainability in action on our new and improved projector screen. As with all movie nights, Dock Street recommends arriving early to secure your seat!
