One of the short documentaries from the series Oakland Originals that I worked on with Jim McSilver is premiering this Saturday April 5th at the Oakland International Film Festival!
Oakland Original Asiya was drawn to the irresistible bounty of fruit growing over fences and sidewalks in Oakland’s Temescal neighborhood and shocked by how much of it was going to waste. As a response she founded Forage Oakland a thriving barter network that brings neighbors together to build stronger communities while harvesting and sharing the riches of their own backyards.
