Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis's (the makers of King Corn) created a mobile community garden in the bed of a 1986 Dodge pickup. Cheney and Ellis's flatbed showed the world that just about anyone can grow tomatoes, broccoli and herbs in the shadow of their apartment building or condo.

The Truck Farm mission is simple: teaching those of us who live far from farmland that anyone can grow their own food, and that locally sourced, healthy produce is vital to the well-being of our family and friends.

The Truck Farmers envision a world where every big city has a mobile community garden. To see their vision come to the screening of Truck Farm!
