Can You Dig This

6:30 pm, Friday, November 10, 2017 at Antioch University New England, Keene, NH — Hosted by Community Garden Connections

South Central LA — what comes to mind is gangs, drugs, liquor stores, abandoned buildings and vacant lots. The last thing you would expect to find is a beautiful garden sprouting up through the concrete, coloring the urban landscape.

Can You Dig This follows the inspirational journeys of four unlikely gardeners as they discover what happens when they put their hands in the soil. This is not a story of science and economics. It’s the story of the Human spirit, inspiring people everywhere to pick up their shovels and “plant some #%@!”.

The Last Crop

5:30–7:30 pm, Sunday, November 12, 2017 at Stonewall Farm — Hosted by the Monadnock Conservancy

Every week, 330 farm families leave their farms. The Last Crop is an intimate exploration into the lives of small family farmers Jeff and Annie Main of California’s Central Valley. Inextricably woven within these organic pioneers’ story is their ten-year pursuit to ensure that farm need not be imperiled at the end of every generation.

In the last year, NH lost 16% of its dairy farms. What is happening in the Monadnock Region? Find out how MFCC member organizations work with retiring farmers to address the delicate issues of farm transfer and planning, and help to get beginning farmers on to available land.
