Our first Green Drinks Ste. Anne event of the year will be on Tuesday, February 9th, at 6 PM in Raymond Building R2-046 on the beautiful Macdonald campus of McGill University in Ste. Anne de Bellevue. We will be screening the film "The Family Farm." Prior to this screening we will have a small presentation by one of the most dynamic student groups on campus - the Out of Garden Project. They are responsible for a student run café that is in its third year of operation. They source their food ingredients from sustainable production systems and their meals are vegetarian and absolutely delicious!
The movie "The Family Farm" explores the farm to table process through the lens of Canadian small farmers and identifies 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.
Free refreshments will be available. All are welcome!
