Film: How We Grow
7 p.m. Auditorium
Healthy soil depends on many organisms working together. A healthy community needs the same. The film, How We Grow, looks at the characters and systems of farming, education, legislation, micro-finance and food equity that are shifting the ways people think about food and their relationship to the land. Together, create a food system that works for everyone. The film offers a template to communities, a guide to grow by, and a sense of hope that we have all the tools to reclaim our food. Directed by Haley Thompson & Thomas Zuccareno. USA, 64 min.
