Transition Cornwall+ First of Food Film Series

  • Place : Cornwall Public Library
  • Time : 13:00
  • Details : This winter enjoy a hearty program of film and conversation offered by the food action group of Transition Cornwall+. From January through to April, many food and agricultural issues will be explored in four exciting new documentaries, highlighting progress in reclaiming our food systems and making them safe, fair, ecologically sound, and sustainable. The monthly series kicks off on Sunday, January 19, 1 p.m. at Cornwall Public Library with Dirt! The Movie. Presented in partnership with the library, this insightful and timely film tells the story of the glorious and unappreciated material beneath our feet. Dirt! The Movie introduces viewers to dirt’s fascinating history. Four billion years of evolution have created the dirt that recycles our water, gives us food, provides us shelter, and that can be used as a source of medicine, beauty and culture. It’s time to learn more about the dirt that our very survival depends on! The Sunday afternoon event includes a warming cup of soup, the screening, and a post-film discussion. Admission is free and open to the public (donations welcome, as are Agape food donations).
