The issue surrounding the community garden and its changing use is an issue that I hadn't heard about before. The documentary did a very good job of establishing the circumstances, meaning, and connection, providing viewers both with contextual relevance and an emotional connection to the concern.
It is unfortunate that I was not able to view the rest of the film in its entirety, but I am confused as to why the city would have constructed the community garden on space they did not officially control. This seems to me to be an unfair oversight that should have been foreseen.
The demonstration of the importance of the garden in the community, particularly as it relates to values and life skills for their families was a compelling argument because there were no viable alternatives to provide the same benefits. The documentary recognized and respected the government's response to their concerns, which added credibility that they were not selectively choosing information to share.
