For the fifth year, SPACE presents a series of films, talks and activities around food sustainability. Our goal is to think a little bit more about where our food comes from and how it gets to us — and perhaps to be inspired to try some projects at home. Here’s a roundup of what’s happening:
Thursday, April 19: Our friends at the Portland Food Co-op host an open house and screening of the film Locavore.
Friday, April 20: We partner with Maine Migrant Health to screen The Harvest / La Cosecha, examining the lives of child migrant farm workers.
Saturday, April 21: Our Saturday Grow Fair features a variety of activities such as seed-bomb making, gardening consultations, a class in home gardening technique, a class in kombucha making, and a few more surprises.
Saturday, April 21: Screening/talk with Daniel Klein from The Perennial Plate.
Sunday, April 22: Wake up the Farm at Cultivating Community’s Boyd Street Farm.
Ongoing: The Urban Farm Fermentory created a garden window installation, up through May 5.
