Feed your mind and your appetite with a series of films that offer inspiration and practical insight on building a sustainable food culture.

Free and open to the public, our film series provides our community with a foundation for making decisions that have a positive impact on our ecological future.

Stay tuned for future film screening dates!

Every summer, we curate a special collection of favorite relevant and recent film releases related to ecology, agriculture, and the food system. Once per month, we turn our courtyard into an outdoor cinema, inviting our community to explore, engage, and educate ourselves about challenges and solutions in our food system. This popular event draws people from all over the region, with individuals and families gathered on blankets and chairs, enjoying a picnic dinner, and sharing meaningful dialogue over what they’ve learned. Select film screenings have featured follow-up events such as a presentation from the film director, or a Q&A with local experts.
