First Outdoor Movie Screening

Saturday, September 21, 2019, 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. The animated portion of "A Garden Grows in Botlyn" episode was about Ren and the Cybersquad working together to make and unlikely space into a beautiful garden. The "For Real" segment was about germinating seeds in the Winter to plant in the Spring. 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 aired 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.
