Locavores! Here is a friendly reminder about our upcoming event at the Beal House in Kingston. We hope to see you there!
August 14th, 7 p.m.: King Corn
From the official website:
King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation.
Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the East Coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat – and how we farm.
Features Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and Earl Butz, former US Secretary of Agriculture.
The films are free. We invite you to bring snacks to share. There will also be a swap table for excess vegetables and plants, and as always, we are collecting non-perishable goods for the ongoing TEAM UP AGAINST HUNGER program, for donation to the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse.
The films will both be shown at:
222 Main Street
And … it’s air-conditioned! This programming is offered in partnership with Kingston’s First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church.
