Free screening in Whitefield: The Biggest Little Farm

Event has passed

WHITEFIELD — Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is partnering with Sheepscot General Store and Coyote Center for Carnivore Ecology & Coexistence to present the film Biggest Little Farm, Sunday, Feb. 16, at 1 p.m., at Sheepscot General Store, in Whitefield. (Snow date, Feb 23 at 1 p.m.)

This film chronicles eight years in the life of John and Molly Chester – and their dog – who leave Los Angeles and, with no agricultural knowledge or experience, take on the task of turning a rundown, barren farm into a model of harvesting with nature. With a lot of help – and not a few pitfalls along the way – they “unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.”

Farmers and community members alike are invited to attend for this free screening followed by conversation about ways to encourage an ecosystem approach to farms and farming.

Sheepscot General Store is located at 98 Townhouse Rd, in Whitefield.

Sheepscot General Cafe will be open; “come early for brunch and stay for an afternoon film and discussion,” said KLSWC, in a news release.
