‘Nourish’ screening, potluck set at the Grange
Join area farmers, community members and local organizations for an evening focused on food at the Sonoma Valley Grange. In addition to locally sourced food, Transition Sonoma Valley will present the award-winning film “Nourish” as it Third-Thursday film offering this month on March 15.
Prior to the showing of the 30-minute documentary, the evening will commence with a potluck supper. Attendees are encouraged to bring a favorite dish to share with foods sourced from within a 50-mile radius of Sonoma for a locavore potluck beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Sonoma Valley Grange, located at 18627 Highway 12 in Boyes Hot Springs.
“Nourish” uses compelling visuals and inspiring stories to trace the relationship to food from a global perspective to personal action steps. The film, hosted and narrated by Cameron Diaz, illustrates how food connects to such issues as biodiversity, climate change, public health and social justice.
The evening will also include a presentation by Tara Smith from Tara Firma Farms in Petaluma.
The event is open to all interested persons, free-of-charge, though donations are gladly accepted.
Transition Sonoma Valley is building a responsive network of local citizens, groups and businesses to create a resilient, self-reliant community in response to the challenges of climate change, peak oil and economic instability.
