180x135A group of eccentric Berkeley neighbors led by an energetic octogenarian reclaim a vacant wasteland and find they have a lot in common.

A Lot in Common follows a disparate group of residents from Berkeley, California as they struggle to transform a vacant lot into a thriving community garden replete with native vegetation, local artwork, and demonstrations of earth-friendly technology in action. Commentary by psychologist/ landscape architect Karl Linn, whose vision of a neighborhood commons provides the framework for the garden, is supplemented by contextual interviews with environmentalist Paul Hawken, Urban Habitat co-founder Carl Anthony, and others.

The award-winning film is “not just about a community garden in Berkeley,” said Terence O’Driscoll, Station Manager of WNYE in New York. “It’s about the human community everywhere.”
