"We firmly believe that he who feeds, leads." – G. Keymah Durden, III

This forum is SOLD OUT. please contact Stacy Holmes at 216.621.0082 or

On this date thirteen years ago, the first building was opened on the Rid-All farm site--based in the Lower Kinsman neighborhood in the former Forgotten Triangle. Since then, Rid-All has grown from 1.3 acres to 18 acres, with a thriving campus that includes six hoop houses, two greenhouses, EPA licensed compost facility, a tree nursery, a tilapia fish farm, and more. Rid-All Farm has become a community anchor and beacon of what is possible in the face of food injustice and the fight toward food sovereignty.

Now, we have a new film that tells this story produced by Seattle's Thriving Communities--a national organization that uses film to catalyze community action. Regenerating Communities chronicles the founding and expansion of our very own Rid-All farm, and the special friends and family who came together to defy the odds and create a national model for urban agriculture.

Join us for a special City Club advance film screening of Regenerating Communities, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A featuring Rid-All Co-Founders Randell McShepard and Keymah Durden, and Filmmaker Ross Monagle.


The livestream will be available beginning at 12:40pm following the film. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
