Meaningful Movie - Oct 12

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

sustainableAt this month’s Woodinville Meaningful Movie on Friday, Oct 12, the film “Sustainable” weaves together expert analysis of America’s food system with the story of one remarkable farmer, Marty Travis, a seventh-generation farmer in central Illinois who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness. Determined to create a proud legacy for his son, Marty transforms his money-losing farm by adopting sustainable agriculture. The film weaves in interviews with other pioneering farmers in a story of hope and transformation.

After the movie, this month’s guest facilitator Jason Padvorac will lead the post-movie discussion and add his own insights as a local farmer.  Padvorac is a suburban farmer and teacher of about permaculture. 
Woodinville Meaningful Movies is a project to bring together neighbors to learn and discuss important issues of our times. They are presented at 7 p.m. on the second Friday of every month, free and open to all, located at Northshore United Church of Christ (18900 168th Ave NE, Wdvl).
