Before and after the screening, please visit with our local farmers and learn about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) options! The most crucial way a community member can help strengthen the food system and help contribute to small local farms is through purchasing a CSA share. CSA shares are a subscription to a season’s worth of sustainable, locally-grown produce that is distributed to members throughout the harvesting season.
Peoples Pies will be there offering delicious, organic, savory pies
Start your 2019 with healthy intentions by supporting local agriculture and a healthy planet.
