Please join us to witness an incredible drama that took place in our own back yard in 2012 and that continues to unfold today.
 “Occupy the Farm” tells the story of 200 urban farmers who walk onto a publicly-owned farm in Albany, California and plant two acres of crops in order to save the land from becoming a real-estate development.

This direct action set up a vibrant tent village on land destined to become condos, while their crops blocked the development plans of UC Berkeley.
Director Todd Darling  will be present for Q&A, and the event will include updates on the current status of the farm and the developers. Copies of the DVD will be available for purchase at the event. 6:30 pm-refreshments, 7-9 pm-program.
