Community Gardeners (2016)
When newcomers arrive in Canada, they face many challenges and many barriers. Establishing a connection with the land and larger community is, for many, necessary to foster a sense of belonging in a new society and environment. This film depicts three of Saskatoon’s community gardens: Good Earth Community Garden, McEown Park Community Garden and the Saskatoon Food Bank Community Garden, each in different parts of the city. Two newcomer gardeners share their struggles and experiences after arriving in Saskatoon, and the several roles their community garden played as they transitioned into their new lives.
