First Outdoor Movie Screening
Saturday, September 21, 6:15 pm // Moore-Jackson Community Garden hosted its first outdoor movie night for the neighborhood to enjoy. We screened the animated film, Coco. Over 100 people turned out.
First Hosting of a Film Crew (PBS/thirteen)
The crew and actors for Cyberchase on PBS/thirteen filmed at our community garden this summer; an episode about germinating seeds in the Winter to plant in the Spring and it all took place in a neighborhood green space like ours. The crew appreciated the room they had for equipment and taking breaks, and we even got to consult on the logistics of planting in raised garden beds so the content was as accurate as possible. The show will air near Valentine's Day, 2020.
If you're a location scout looking for a community garden or open green space in the city, please email us.
