Potluck Dinner and Farmageddon movie

Let's enjoy some good food and watch the latest documentary in on farm and food politics directed and produced by Massachusetts mother Kristin Canty! We have watched the screening last fall with her, and it is an emotionally riveting movie about food rights. Farmageddon stars Joel Salatin (Polyface Farms also in Food Inc.) and Mark McAfee (Organic Pastures Dairy, California), among others. It is currently #5 on Itunes for Independent Movies! It is playing on Amazon Video on Demand, Netflix, Blockbuster on Demand, XBox, Zune etc.

The movie is about 1 hour 30 minutes (90 min), so we will watch first and then have dinner!

http://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/8/2/0/c/event_113193292.jpegKristin Canty is the Director/Producer of Farmageddon; The Unseen War on American Family Farms.  She is a first-time film maker, small farm advocate, fresh milk drinker and a mom.  One of her children was ridden with multiple allergies and asthma as a pre-schooler, and when medications couldn’t help him, she found that raw milk helped him recover.  Since then, she has tried to buy most of her family’s food directly from local, organic farms. When Kristin learned that farmers and co-ops all over the country were increasingly getting raided by the government, she set out to  make a film about it. She hopes that when people see it, it can change the tide of public pressure so that our government stops harassing and adding costly burdens to our small, organic farmers. Kristin lives in Concord, Massachusetts with her husband, four children, two dogs , two cats and 11 chickens.

We are also above the Hynes Convention Green line subway.

Parking:

1) cheapest but hardest to come on Newbury street/curbside parking.
