Title: Screening of : Edible City- Grow the Revolution
START DATE: Thursday July 03
TIME: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Details:
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley http://www.bfuu.org
Event Type: Screening
Meet, greet, and share locally grown snacks at 6:30. Our featured film Edible City-Grow the Revolution will take us to nearby farms like the Gil Tract, Green Faerie Farm, and City Slicker Farms where we meet some of the pioneers in the Bay Area's sustainable food movement. Learning from their experiences we can see the possibilities of growing our food very close to home and loving it.

Our special guest speaker will be Wanda Stewart, who has been working with neighbors building community and economic resilience while raising impressive crops on a small city lot. We think you'll be inspired by the ways she's brought people together at Obsidian Farm to improve their lives by cooperating, trading and sharing skills. After the film we'll talk with Wanda about how we might replicate this model of a new way of living in an urban environment.
