A T-Shirt of Fairey’s Urban Roots image – 100% of profits will go to putting farms in schools

“I created this poster for the documentary Urban Roots. It’s a great film and I know from working with these same folks on the 11th Hour that they are great grassroots activists. A portion of the proceeds from this poster go to Urban Roots Action.”

Urban Roots and it’s action to put farms in schools is getting a big push from Shepard Fairey who has generously created a poster to support the action and will donate proceeds from his artwork.

OBEY Clothing will also sell a T-Shirt of Fairey’s Urban Roots image in which 100% of profits will go to putting farms in schools. Urban Roots, Tree Media’s next documentary, is a timely, moving and inspiring film about the emergence of urban farmers in the most unlikely of places, in downtown Detroit.
