Every Third Thursday, we activists from Dairy Creek Community Food Web come together to share another film with our friends and neighbors. We certainly hope you all can take a break from digging in the dirt to come to this FOOD FESTIVAL FILM, which is FREE, absolutely FREE! Popcorn is free, too! Even the chai tea is free. Not many places can offer you an evening of monthly educational films that are free these days. But you are guaranteed a lively conversation following the films, and this one has a lot of great special features, too. Once again, for instance, Alice Waters remains passionate and articulate as the founder of not only Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, Ca., but the incredible EDIBLE SCHOOLYARD! And just wait until you find out why wines taste different even if the vineyards are next to each other, and even if the grape type is the same. Come and share the joy and the concern for DIRT!
APRIL 18, 2013 @ 7:30 p.m. DIRT!!! The Movie @ Forest Grove Grange, 1917 “B” St.
This is an insightful and timely film that tells the story of the glorious and underappreciated material beneath our feet. Narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, Dirt! The Movie shares stories from experts around the world who are studying it, discovering new ways to repair a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil. Appearing in the film are Alice Waters, Vandana Shiva, Wangari Maathai, Andy Lipkis, Pierre Rabhi, William Bryant Logan, Miguel Altieri, Majora Carter, and many other “dirt people”.
A discussion will follow the film.
