     TRUCK FARM 2011 (48min)
     Directed by Curt Ellis and Ian Cheney
 
 
Somewhere on the streets of Brooklyn, New York, a tiny farmon-wheels is growing in the back of a 1986 Dodge pick-up truck. Filmmaker Ian Cheney planted his truck farm in 2009 after moving to New York City and realizing there was no space to grow food. The 1/1000th acre farm started as an experiment, using rooftop farming irrigation techniques to grow a variety of plants including parsley, broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes, and basil. The miniature yield is not enough to support large-scale consumption; however, the truck farm serves as a portable educational tool for urban students and a tribute to edible innovation. In just two years, the original project has expanded into 25 mobile truck farms across the country. Each truck in this “Truck Farm Fleet” is unique, but together this moving force is teaching people that growing food can be fun, easy, and rewarding despite a scarcity of land.
