The Works Cafe invites you to this year’s Feast On This Film Festival in Keene, NH.

The 2018 film festival features movies that highlight a diversity of issues and viewpoints related to food and agriculture. Films chosen spark conversation among the community about what we value about the farms in our region, and action around building stronger, local, regional, and national sustainable food systems.

Suggested donation per film: $10/per person  or $30/film festival pass on sell at film venues the day of screening.

Everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever.

November 9 – Friday
6:30pm, Stonewall Farm
Hosted by  – Northeast Center for Appropriate Technology – Northeast

With the average age of the U.S. farmer pushing 60, and with young people unable to afford farmland and equipment, WHO will grow our food? Farmers For America explores the challenges our farmers are facing and the reasons why agriculture is facing a looming skills gap unlike anything we’ve ever encountered.

A panel of local farmers and experts will share how they are working together to address this issue in our area.

November 10 – Saturday
1pm, Antioch University New England
Hosted by Community Garden Connections

Over the past 15 years, numbers of colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world but the causes of this disaster remain unknown. In the latest estimates, 1.5 million (out of 2.4 million total beehives) have disappeared across 27 states in the U.S.

Eighty percent of plant species require bees to be pollinated. Without bees, there is no pollinization, and fruits and vegetables could disappear from the face of the Earth.

Join CGC for a discussion about what is being done locally to combat colony collapse disorder and to find out what you can do to help.

“If bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would only have four years left to live” – Albert Einstein
