Food film takes at look at fight to save garden

What’s wrong with the nation’s food system, and how can it be fixed?

That’s the general theme of many of the films in the “Fouth Friday Food Films” series, held the fourth Friday of every month at Zero Station, 222 Anderson St. in Portland.

This Friday’s film is “The Garden,” a look at how a Los Angeles neighborhood that started a community garden in the wake of riots fights to save its 14-acre plot of land from bulldozers.

Admission is free.

Doors open at 6:30 with some mixing and eats, followed by the film at 7 p.m.
