Green Drinks Ste. Anne's next event will be on Monday (March 30th) at 6 PM in Raymond Building R2-046 on the beautiful Macdonald campus of McGill University in Ste. Anne de Bellevue. We will screen the film "The Family Farm."
The Family Farm explores the farm to table process through the lens of Canadian small farmers and indentifies the systematic barriers they face in running a profitable farm. In its journey across the country, the film blends extraordinary shots of the Canadian farm landscape with discussions of the challenges and setbacks small farmers endure, as well as the turning points and breakthroughs that have allowed them to achieve success. As these intimate accounts are shared, traditional images of family farmers are redefined as we grow to see these individuals not only as farmers, but as teachers, botanists, and mechanics who open our eyes to the issues that continue to threaten small farmers as well as the importance of buying local and organic foods.
This film was released last year to celebrate the International Year of the Family Farm. The movie is one hour and 15 minutes long. All are welcome!
