It was a great night for a community film. It was a great night to meet local farmers and consumers.
It was a nice night to sit under the stars and see how the food system is in crisis and how we can help.
We shared desserts, popcorn, coffee and cocoa. We visited and discussed and learned a lot about each other.
Kids played and had fun and made new friends.
By the time the sun set and the film started, we had over 100 folks here to watch and partake.
I know any who left inspired to learn more about grass based farming and Joel Salatin.
By Sunday I was wiped out from the very busy weekend and had to take an afternoon nap. Ditto with Monday.
Today I am refreshed and ready to get my farming plans down on paper so we can be prepared for spring pigs, chickens, lambs and calves.
If you missed it, you can buy a DVD copy of the film American Meat here. If you need a great resource book, just order anything by Joel Salatin, especially "You Can Farm."
If you ask me about hosting another community night next year, I will say, "YES!"
It was wonderful to host this event and I will happily do it again!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came out and to everyone who brought a dessert or snack to share! It wouldn't have been a success without you all and your contributions and participation.
