Community events have already started for 2019 and you are welcome anytime to come take part, visit, volunteer, or plan an event of your own. Message us on Facebook or Instagram.

As you may recall, a number of our Garden members have been developing Good Life Garden around the corner from us on Goodwin Place. On Friday May 31st we are organizing a very special event that will take place at Good Life, and we hope you will join us…

On Friday, May 31st Good Life Garden in Bushwick BK will host a public screening of Owned : A Tale of Two Americas, a documentary film by Giorgio Angelini featured in many 2018 film festivals including DOC NYC Festival, and Full Frame Documentary Festival, and receiving nationwide digital release on June 4th 2019 via Monument Releasing.

From the Owned website: “Owned is a fever dream vision into the dark history behind the US housing economy. Tracking its overtly racist beginnings and its unbridled commoditization, the film exposes a foundational story that few Americans understand as their own.”

Gates open at 7:00 pm with music by Martin Bisi, whose iconic Gowanus recording studio is threatened by city re-zoning, legendary Brooklyn composer Brian Jackson, (longtime collaborator with Gil Scott-Heron) and Ray Rizzo.

Owned: A Tale of Two Americas will show at 8:30pm followed by Q and A with Owned director Giorgio Angelini, Sam Chiera of Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, artist/activist Julia Allen (co-producer of the film Decade Of Fire) and other community guests, moderated by actor/educator Brian Mendes.

This event is all ages and open to the public. There will be vegetarian and gluten-free pizza and refreshments including beer from Threes Brewing. Donations of any amount will be accepted for event costs and garden upkeep. (Sugg. donation $5-$10).

This evening is presented by members of Good Life Garden and members of the The People’s Garden, two neighborhood collectives with a history of organizing community arts events in their respective gardens. The evening’s Q and A will be recorded for a property rights podcast currently being developed by some of the garden members.

Good Life Garden is located at the corner of Grove St. and Goodwin Place, between Broadway and Bushwick Ave., close to the JMZ Gates stop.
