Come celebrate Earth Day at the Gem Theater! There will be a Potluck at 3:30pm, followed by showings at 4:30pm of farm-friendly films including:
- ‘Growing Local’: While “buying local” is on the rise, the stories in Growing Local make clear that small farms and access to locally produced food is not a sure thing. These three poignant stories help us understand the interconnected fates of Maine’s small farms, consumers and the local food movement. Growing Local was directed and produced by Bridget Besaw of Seedlight Pictures.
- ‘Farms of Western Maine: Moon Dance Farm’, which was created by junior high students at The Eddy School.
- Alan Day Community Garden will show a short film about their Youth Leadership Program.
- Center For an Ecology Based Economy (CEBE) in Norway will show a short film about their food festival.
After these films, we will have Q&A with representatives of all of those organizations, including MFT’s Chris Franklin.
