"What’s On Your Plate?” is a witty and provocative documentary about kids and food politics.
Over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old African-American city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah talk to food activists, farmers, and storekeepers, as they address questions regarding the origin of the food they eat, how it’s cultivated, and how many miles it travels from farm to fork. They also check out innovative sustainable food system practices by going to farms, green markets, and community supported agriculture (CSA) programs. Sadie and Safiyah formulate sophisticated and compassionate opinions about urban sustainability, and by doing so inspire hope and active engagement in others. Church members can check out this movie at the church.

Adopt a Garden? - Spring is right around the corner and so many of us can't wait to begin planting! Perhaps this season you are unable to tend to a garden, but love fresh vegetables, fruit and flowers from your own backyard. If so, perhaps you would like to put your garden up for adoption! Adopt a Garden will match you up with a volunteer who will tend and maintain your garden in exchange for shared harvest. We are also interested in volunteers willing to adopt a garden.
Please call Rebecca Bean 899-1636 or e-mail to volunteer, or to put your name on the Adopt a Garden List!
