Farm Film Feast: Five days of film, food, and discussion
March 10th-14th, 2010
Eating locally continues to be a growing and necessary movement in the United States and an issue many families in Western Mass take to heart. Who produces our food, how it reaches us, and how it affects the health of our families, our environment, and our local and global communities are questions that are more important than ever before! – A wonderful opportunity to learn more about the issues that are inspiring and supporting a local food movement is coming to Western Massachusetts.
