Film & Food: Truck Farm, April 14

Film & Food Night: Truck Farm
Greater Seacoast Permaculture Group
The Waysmeet Center, 15 Mill Rd, Durham, NH
Sunday, April 14, 2013
6–9pm

TRUCK FARM tells the story of a new generation of quirky urban farmers. Viewers are trucked across New York to see the city’s funkiest urban farms, and to find out if America’s largest city can learn to feed itself.

Blending serious exposition with serious silliness, Truck Farm entreats viewers to ponder the future of urban farming, and to consider whether sustainability needs a dose of whimsy to be truly sustainable.

From the creators of King Corn, featuring chef Dan Barber, nutritionist Marion Nestle, explorer Henry Hudson and a very lonely seagull. With musical narration by The Fishermen Three. Called “hilariously fun” by the ED of NOFA-NY.

We will plan to start with the film which runs 48 minutes, then have a potluck and discussion. Please bring a “potluck kit” – dish, bowl, cup, silverware, napkin – as well as your potluck contribution. We will be able to plug in crockpots, heat some items up, make hot water for tea.

Parking on Sunday is easy there – go to UNH’s C Lot, across Mill Rd from Waysmeet.

We will be taking donations to cover costs for the event as all our films this year have required a screening license cost.

Sponsored by the Greater Seacoast Permaculture Meetup Group & The United Campus Ministry to UNH
