How Does Your Garden Grow? The Spring 2019 EPFC Youth Filmmaking Workshop


Students will work on a collaborative film exploring urban gardening, plants as food and as medicine, native plants, and more, within the Los Angeles area. Using 16mm film and brewing their own eco-friendly developers from foraged plants, students will go out into the field to meet with gardeners, food activists, artists, and other members of our community to create a portrait of the current state of urban gardening in Los Angeles. In addition to weekly class meetings, students will be expected to go on extra field trips and out-of-class filming excursions. FREE for youth ages 12 – 19.

Instructors: Dicky Bahto, Gemma Jimenez, Chloe Reyes and Nicole Ucedo

This class is FREE to teens ages 12 – 19 with all instruction, materials and equipment provided at no cost by EPFC. Participants must be willing and able to attend ALL 10 SESSIONS!

A mandatory orientation session for all participating students and their parents/guardians will take place at EPFC at 10 am on Saturday, March 2.
