Growing Food on Staten Island
A video presentation by Jay Weichun
Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 2:30 to 3:30 pm
College of Staten Island Library Theater

Jay Weichun is a Staten Island-based filmmaker focusing on issues surrounding ecology, social justice and spatial relationships.  His work attempts to interweave individual narratives of community building and resistance. He is an adjunct assistant professor in the Dept. of Media Culture, College of Staten Island/CUNY.

Convinced that home vegetable gardens are a means of understanding Staten Island and its people, Weichun has been documenting Staten Island gardeners since 2008 and has done video interviews with more than 28 gardeners. He will show a selection of his videos and discuss his project.

This event is being sponsored by the Greener Library Committee of the Library, which promotes greater awareness of environmental issues.

This event is a CC CLUE event
