Growing Local Films


Growing Local Film & Discussion

Tuesday April 14

6pm Rockland Public Library

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 in Maine, and points toward possible solutions.

The screening is free and open to everyone, thanks to (Good Tern, and other orgs) and Maine Farmland Trust. More information and a schedule of upcoming shows can be found on the Maine Farmland Trust website, or by calling 338-6575.
