Celebrate Juneteenth with a screening of Green Thumb, Brown Hand, a documentary film by local artist Mya Saree’ Gray, that explores the current food desert conditions in Waterbury.

This documentary interviews farmers, urban studies and housing experts, wellness specialists, and local Waterbury residents, all of whom question the lack of attainable, freshly grown food in the City. This documentary challenges the community to reinvigorate the rich tradition of farming and encourage residents in urban areas to once again grow their own food.

This program is supported by Drew International.
