Growing Cities: Be The Change Documentary Film Series

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 23:30

Fourth Wednesday of each month, October - April (excluding December)
Be The Change Documentary Film Series was created in 2008 to educate and inspire the local community into action where it relates to our fragile ecosystem and what each of us can do to help preserve it. Blue Mountain Watershed Trust Foundation and Elephant Thoughts are working together along with other community partners to provide the audience with a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of some of the most important ecological and social justice issues facing our local area and the communities of planet Earth. Proceeds support local programs and initiatives at Blue Mountain Watershed Trust and Elephant Thoughts.

Growing Cities
January 28, 2015

A film that examines the role of urban farming in America and asks how much power it has to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat. In their search for answers, filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden, and backyard chicken coop at a time. Join them as they discover that good food isn’t the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.

Admission - $8.00 at the door
Doors Open 6:30pm
Musical Guests: 6:30pm
Film Presentation: 7:15pm

Ticket booklets for entry to all 6 films on sale for only $40 at the Elephant Thoughts Explore Store, The Environment Network, or online at www.consciouswater.ca

Come early to chat with local vendors, have a free Ashanti coffee and listen to some great local music!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
