Food Film Series

The Co-op is sponsoring a series of documentaries at the Civic Media Center, 433 South Main, leading up to our grand store opening. Join us on the following Monday Evenings at 7pm for a great film, popcorn, & connecting.

Mar 14th, 7pm: Fresh With presentation from Cognito Farms to follow.
Mar 21st, 7pm: Greenhorns As part of Cinema Verde Film Fest
Mar 28th, 7pm: Dirt With presentation from The Herb Garden to follow on soil building.

April 11th, 7pm:
WHAT’S ORGANIC ABOUT “ORGANIC?” delves into the debates that arise when a grassroots agricultural movement evolves into a booming international market. As the film moves from farm fields to government meetings to industry trade shows, we see the hidden costs of conventional agriculture. We also see how our health, the health of our planet, and the agricultural needs of our society are all intimately connected. The film compels us to look forward, towards a new vision for our culture and encourages us to ask, “How can we eat with an ecological consciousness?”

New: Meet the Filmmakers!! With a presentation from FOG’s Social Justice Program to follow.

$5-$10 suggested donation to benefit the CMC and Co-op jointly.
