Sustainable urban agriculture has a new face. It's 1/1000th of an acre and in the back of a pick-up truck. Ian Cheney, co-author of King Corn, has created a new documentary titled Truck Farm. Truck farm is described as a "whimsical, musical documentary about the quirky world of urban agriculture."
More details and the Truck Farm trailer after the jump.
This 48 minute film features a mini farm planted in an old 1986 Dodge. It travels around urban neighborhoods educating kids who might not otherwise get to experience a "farm." The project has turned into a "fleet" of 25 trucks designed to be an "edible exhibit."
If you're interested in previewing the trailer, we've gone ahead and embedded it right here for your previewing pleasure:
