While “buying local” is on the rise, the stories in GROWING LOCAL make clear that small farms and access to locally produced food is not a sure thing.  In three short vignettes we meet the young farm couple Ben & Taryn, who, on risky sweat-equity, have revitalized a famously fertile piece of farmland into a thriving community food hub, artisanal butcher Ben who helps us better understand how healthier, thoughtful meat production can be supported and sustained, and Richard and Adam, father and son organic dairy farmers struggling to keep their family farm going and in the family. These poignant stories help us understand the interconnected fates of Maine’s small farms, consumers and the local food movement.

The film will be co-presented by Maine Farmland Trust and The Portland Food Co-opand will be followed by a Q+A with the director and others involved in the film.

THIS SATURDAY! Waking Windows Portland is in Metamorphosis. Join us for 10 bands & performances, 15 authors, 1 big record fair, family art activities, and more across 6 Congress St. venues.
