"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." - Anne Raver
JOIN MFCC as we honor LOCAL FOOD HERO, FARMER JOHN'S PLOT, who is dedicated to educating, empowering and employing the next generation of farmers, while providing sustainable food to our surrounding communities. Honor follows screening of Real Food Media's POPup Film Festival on Saturday, November 11, 2017, 7pm - 9pm at The Hive at Hannah Grimes Center. (See Film Schedule)
Our films educate our community about the diverse issues affecting our national, regional and local food and agricultural systems.
We chose films that will spark conversation and action around building stronger local, regional and sustainable food systems.
Suggested donation: $10/a film or $30/festival pass for sell at film venues.
All proceeds underwrite venue and film rental costs, and to the Monadnock Farm and Community Coalition.
I am a Doctoral Fellow in Environmental Studies, developing a framework for food empowerment in my research habitat, community gardens. I see my work as cultivating knowledge and nourishing community as well as building thriving food systems. To this work I bring an appreciation for our interconnected nature, and edges as creative spaces.
