Harvest of Pride: A Visual Narrative about People, Food, & a Little Dirt
A CLLAS grantee presentation by graduate student Chris Roddy
“Harvest of Pride” uses first-hand accounts from participants in Huerto de la Familia’s program to see how gardens, farming, and food-based microenterprises can support and stabilize immigrant families. Combining the anecdotes and stories of Latinos in the Eugene-Springfield community and interviews with food justice advocates throughout the United States, these documentary film essays contemplate Oregon’s preparedness in facing a challenging, but potentially rich future for its growing immigrant population.
