This film was made for and featured in the Roskilde film festival in Denmark.

Putting Down Roots is a gardening project for people who are currently homeless or have been in the past, or who are at risk of becoming homeless.

They work in hostel grounds, public parks and on their own allotment, (shown in this film) developing gardening skills, growing organic vegetables and carrying out landscaping and building projects.

This film features Gary Harding who talks about his past and what the garden now means to him.

Thanks to Gary Harding, Ian Kavanagh, Gerard Davis, Brian Horne, Eugene Rossi, Fiona Finn and Martin Snowdon for giving us permission to film.

You can find more information about the work they do here on the Mungos website.
