‘Growing Local’ at Gibbs Library

Nov 27, 2017

Washington — Gibbs Library and Maine Farmland Trust will present “Growing Local” Thursday, Dec. 7, at 6 p.m. in the Bryant Room of the library, 40 Old Union Road.

Prior to the film, there will be refreshments from the Washington General Store. The screening 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.

“Growing Local” comprises 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 screening is free and open to everyone. For more information, call Maine Farmland Trust at 338-6575 or Gibbs Library at 845- 2663. Maine Farmland Trust is a member-powered organization that works to protect farmland, support farmers and advance the future of farming in Maine. For more information, visit mainefarmlandtrust.org.
