Locally Rooted Film: Free Virtual Screening
August 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
On August 27, 2020, Monadnock Food Co-op, Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF), and Monadnock Farm and Community Coalition will co-host a virtual screening of Locally Rooted, a locally produced documentary by Greg Pregent of 710 Main Films. This film highlights the Monadnock Food Co-op Farm Fund and features New Hampshire farmers from Archway Farm, Echo Farm, Manning Hill Farm, and Tracie’s Community Farm.
The film starts at 6:30 p.m. and a live post-film discussion will follow. This event is free, but registration is required.
The Monadnock Food Co-op Farm Fund, created in partnership with the Cheshire Country Conservation District, supports local farmers by increasing sustainable food production and wholesale sales to contribute to a thriving local farm economy. Since 2017, the Farm Fund awarded over $59,000 in grants to fourteen local farms.
“Our Farm Fund is an essential way to invest in the future of local, sustainable farming in our region,” said Michael Faber, Monadnock Food Co-op General Manager. “It helps ensure we have a healthy, local food system for our community.”
This community screening coincides with NH Eats Local Month, a month-long celebration of local food and New Hampshire farmers and food producers. Increased consumption of local food boosts the health of the economy, communities, and environment.
