‘Growing Local’ film at Gibbs Library
WASHINGTON — The Gibbs Library and Maine Farmland Trust will present the film, Growing Local, on Thursday, Feb. 9, at 6 p.m. in the Bryant Room of the library in Washington. Prior to the film, there will be refreshments from The Washington General Store. 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 Maine Farmland Trust at 207-338-6575 or Gibbs Library at 207-845-2663.
