Please join us as Maine Farmland Trust presents the film Growing Local. Prior to the film, there will be refreshments from The Washington General Store and the film will be followed by a community discussion.
Growing Local is a collaboration between Maine Farmland Trust and Seedlight Pictures. The film points to the vibrancy and the growing pains of the local food movement in Maine, and the uncertain fate of the farmers and farmland that keep it alive.
The film contains three short vignettes: “Seeding A Dream,” “Pig Not Pork,” and “Changing Hands.” Each focuses on a different challenge hindering the growth of the local food movement, and points toward possible solutions.
The screenings are free and open to everyone. Further information about this event can be found by calling Caroline at the Maine Farmland Trust at 207-338-6575 or visit the Gibbs Library Facebook Event.
Maine Farmland Trust is a member-powered organization that works to protect farmland, support farmers, and advance the future of farming in Maine. More information at mainefarmlandtrust.org.
