Filmmakers Curt Ellis and Ian Cheney figured that if you can make a living green roof, then you can make a farm in a truck bed. Especially somewhere like Brooklyn where garden space is limited. The pair (responsible for the documentary King Corn) converted the bed of a 1986 Dodge pickup into a flourishing vegetable farm, dubbed Truck Farm, and filmed the process, even using a solar-powered time-lapse camera on the roof.  Folks have been signing up for their CSA at $20 a share and are able to hand pick lettuce and broccoli and other heirloom veg right from the tailgate.

The series of musical video shorts includes original songs by The Fishermen Three and excerpts are up now on YouTube. The full film will be released this winter, and also looks at other experiments with farming in the concrete jungle of New York City.
