No Place to Grow is a feature-length documentary—currently in production—about the struggle for the Beach Flats Community Garden in Santa Cruz. As urban community gardens become both increasingly popular and increasingly contentious in cities across the country, No Place to Grow follows the story of the Beach Flats Garden, which embodies both the social benefits of community gardens and the perils that these spaces face in an unjust world of food and land insecurity.
