Every neighborhood should have an urban farm.

..

The documentary Bringing Food Home is the work of filmmakers David Aubrey and Nanda Currant.

..

They started work on it after Gaia Gardens, an urban farm operating along Arroyo Chamiso, attracted a host of city zoning, fire, electrical and more inspectors after a neighbor complained about the operation. Founders Poki Piottin and Dominique Lozo labored to bring it into compliance, losing some of their flexibility to bring in volunteers to help farm and groups to learn how urban farms can work, and to sell produce on the premises.

..

At the same time, a host of neighborhood residents spoke out in favor of Gaia Gardens, saying it was a center to build community, and a welcome oasis in the scrubby and weedy environs along the sandy arroyo.

..

Aubrey said in a telephone interview that he had ridden his bike along the trail behind Gaia Gardens and seen the plantings taking shape there. When he heard about the issues it was having with zoning and city ordinances, he thought it would be ripe for filming.

..

He hadnt had a particular interest in urban farming before, but has been a filmmaker in Santa Fe for 34 years. Previous work of his includes A Thousand Voices about tribal women in the Southwest, which aired on New Mexico PBS and won an award from New Mexico Women in Film, and the Emmy-winning Canes of Power, which explores the history of the canes President Abraham Lincoln presented to tribes to signal their sovereignty.

..

Hearing about Gaia Gardens, Aubrey said, he wondered with all our best intentions, with the interest so broad in eating healthfully, it seems kind of like a no-brainer. Why wouldnt we love this? The filmmakers considered broadening the project to a feature-length documentary on urban farming, but the time and money for such a project meant it would not be ready in time to have an impact on the local situation, he said. It would take a long time to get out the word, he said.

..

But the film does reach beyond Gaia Gardens in talking about the need for local food sources.

..

And that was one of the points that stood out for me. The more centralized any industry or system becomes, the easier it is to derail.
