The First Friday Film Series, hosted by Grayson LandCare & The Church of the Good Shepherd brings documentary films to the public, complete with popcorn and panel discussions afterwards.
April 7th, we will screen Polyfaces: A World of Many Choices Sponsored by: Grayson Natural Farms
Set amidst the stunning Shenandoah Valley in northern Virginia, ‘Polyface Farm’ is led by the “the world’s most innovative farmer” (TIME) and uses no chemicals and feeds over 6,000 families and many restaurants and food outlets within a 3 hour ‘foodshed’ of their farm.
‘Polyfaces’ is a joyful film about connecting to the land and the community. Produced over 4 years it follows the Salatin’s, a 4th generation farming family who do ‘everything different to everyone else’ as they produce food in a way that works with nature, not against it. Using the symbiotic relationships of animals and their natural functions, they produce high quality, nutrient-dense products.
The film shows how they regenerate their landscapes, communities, local economies, customer’s health and most importantly their soils. Meet various characters and follow their powerful, personal journeys as they benefit physically and emotionally from the Salatin’s way of farming. This model is being replicated throughout our global village, proving that we can provide quality produce without depleting our planet.
Friday, April 7th, 7:00pm at The Church of the Good Shepherd: 9441 Grayson Pkwy, Galax.
