Truck Farm (trailer here) is an hour-long whimsical documentary for all ages. Struck with the urge to build a garden but with no land to grow it on, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis (co-creators of the film King Corn) of Wicked Delicate productions decided to use a 1986 gray Dodge Ram pickup truck to create a portable vegetable and herb garden. Cheney and Ellis decide to harness solar energy atop of the old gray dodge to document the Truck Farm's progress with enchanting time-elapsed filming, launch the Truck Farm Community Supported Agriculture program and explore other unique urban agriculture projects throughout their home state of New York. Each episode is accompanied by delightful musical narration from the Fisherman Three and includes visits with Food Politics author Dr. Marion Nestle who explains the benefits of mobile gardening and to the infamous Stone Barns restaurant.
Post-production, the Truck Farm project is launched as a nationwide youth gardening campaign and currently has 25 trucks as a part of its fleet across the US. Truck Farm Phoenix and its caretakers, Natalie Morris, Clea Senneville and Mikey Avila, will be in attendance taking Q&A post-presentation.
