The Garden Inside

In Seville, in the south of Spain, communities and collectives are practicing urban agriculture in different spaces, in different ways, and for different reasons. Huerto del Rey Moro is an occupied permaculture garden in the centre of Seville, while Parque de Miraflores was formerly a construction dump-site during the city’s rapid expansion in the 1960s and 70s. This short film explores the themes of communication and transformation within and between the two gardens. This short film was made by, with, and for urban food producers and allies in Seville, part of an ongoing research project (available in English and Spanish with subtitles).
