Growing local at the alamo
March 23, 2015

Join Healthy Acadia at The Alamo Theatre in Bucksport on Thursday, April 2nd, at 6:30 pm for a screening of Maine Farmland Trust's newest documentary about farming in Maine, entitled Growing Local. A community discussion will follow. The viewing is free, donations will be appreciated.

Growing Local explores the growing pains of the local food movement 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. These poignant stories help us understand the interconnected fates of Maine’s small farms, consumers and the local food movement. More specifics on the three vignettes and a schedule of upcoming shows can be found here.
