No Place to Grow and the Transmedia project aim to inspect various dimensions of food sovereignty, community movements, and agroecology in an urban context. On this page, you can explore relevant and related topics and resources in these realms. The project is also a collaborative effort, in which we work with several community and state partners who have assisted with the realization of the film. Here you can learn more about local, regional, and international organizations, institutions, and people that we think are striving to make our communities more secure, sustainable, and socially just.
