This family friendly event will be held at Oscar Twillman Field in Harley Park, Boonville. We will be showing the original 1972 TV version of The Lorax as well as the 2012 Feature Film. There will be Lorax Bingo for the littles and a quick panel discussion to talk about the differences between films. Every child will receive a packet of seeds and the first 10 families will receive a hardcover 50th anniversary edition of The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.
We will be showing the movie Drive in style but if folks would like to social distance outside of their cars they are welcome to bring lawn chairs or utilize the stands responsibly.
Right to Harm- October 14th 6-8
We welcome you to join us right here for a virtual screening of Right to Harm. This in-depth film will show us the dirty business of factory farming as well as the effects of Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) on the environment and communities they impact. Followed by a panel discussion featuring policy experts and local farmers.
Sustainable October 21st-6-8
You’re invited to Cooper County Fairgrounds for this Drive-In event. Bring your lawn chairs if you would prefer to social distance under the October sky. This film allows us to compare and contrast conventional commercial farming models with more sustainable and ecologically beneficial traditional farming. With an emphasis on the choices consumers can make to eat local and support family farms, we will follow the film with a panel discussion and survey on sustainability and what we can do as citizens and consumers to support family farms and to promote policies that make it easier for them to compete against Big Ag,
Kiss the Ground -TBA rescheduled due to bad weather.
This sweeping film takes us deep into the future and will ultimately show us how that future is in our hands, as well as the soil beneath our feet. The choices we make now, as farmers, consumers, and citizens can be the deciding factor between runaway climate change and carbon drawdown, between surviving and thriving. Learn how putting ruminants back on the land can help us to feed a hungry nation and save the world. Followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. As this is the final event in our series, you’re all invited out to the farm. Our Executive Director Rhonda Perry and Director of Operations Roger Allison have been gracious enough to let us have this one at their place.
