Screening: Growing Your Own

Growing Your Own is a collaboration between The CG Project and People Made Visible to get more young people excited about gardening by showing video projects that promote creativity, resourcefulness and fun in Growing Your Own. The film screening will take place at the West Chicago Community Center during Blooming Fest on May 21.

The goal of Growing Your Own is to raise funds and recruit volunteers for a Community Garden that is set to begin in late May. Local filmmakers from a variety of genres have been invited to submit work on the theme of Growing Your Own and the collection will be presented during Blooming Fest.

Audience members will have the opportunity to reserve a plot for the Community Garden, take work home from the featured filmmakers and contribute to a fresh, new community building experience in West Chicago.
