Farmers For America

A film brought to you by Greenbelt: Essex County’s Land Trust

TICKETS: Greenbelt

6:00pm: Meet & Greet with local farmers (includes light refreshments with cash bar)

7:00pm: Film screening

This documentary traces the extraordinary changes coming to America’s food system. At the center of the film are the farmers – young and old – who provide the spirit and energy to bring urban and rural America together over what both share in common: our food.

With the average age of today’s farmer at 60, and rural America losing population as the cost of land and equipment soars, this film reveals the people waiting to take their place, the practices they’re championing and the obstacles they must overcome.

Join Greenbelt and local farmers for this special screening, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Land For Good featuring local young farmers from Alprilla Farm, Cedar Rock Gardens, and Grant Family Farm.
