Farm and Film Gala celebrates spring

Awareness Film Night and Sooke Region Food CHI join forces for a night of film and food

  • Apr. 5, 2016 5:00 p.m.

Looking for a night out and some healthy treats? Celebrate spring at the ninth annual Farm and Film Gala, presented by Awareness Film Night and Sooke Region Food CHI on April 13.

There will be more than a dozen tables in the Edward Milne Community School theatre foyer, featuring vendors of farm produce and products, seeds, plants and locally made foods as well as info from local farm and food-related non-profits.

Tea and goodies made by EMCS culinary arts students will also be available. There will be plenty of time to browse and visit and stock up on early carrots and greens, as well as seeds before the film screenings.

Two short, but inspiring films will start at 7:45 p.m., Nourish: Food and Community and Cultivating Healthy Food and Gardens for a Sustainable Future.

The films are focused on our relationship to food, from field to plate, both from a global perspective and from community initiatives that make food production a local endeavor.

The evening will be capped by a draw for several gift baskets.

Doors open at 6:45 p.m. and the films will run from 7:45 to 9 p.m.

Admission is by donation. For more info, visit awarenessfilmnight.ca.
