Join CT NOFA at Audubon Greenwich for a viewing of Polyfaces: A World of Many Choices, a joyful film about connecting to the land and the community.
Polyfaces.. a film to inspire and create change…“As the problems of the world become more and more complex, the solutions become clear and simple.”
“If every farmer in the United States would practice this system, in fewer than 10 years we would sequester ALL the CARBON that’s been emitted since the beginning of the Industrial Age…
- Joel Salatin, (2015), Polyfaces, the film.
One Australian family spend their life savings and travel to the USA, spending 4 years documenting a style of farming that will help change the fate of humanity!
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.
Produced over 4 years, ‘Polyfaces’ 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.
We show how they regenerate their landscapes, communities, local economies, customer’s health and most importantly their soils. We 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.
Agriculture is the most damaging industry but it doesn’t have to be and this regenerative model of food production could be just the thing that saves us!
CT NOFA Executive Director Jeff Cordulack will discuss innovative organic farming models which help reverse climate change by absorbing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
If you eat, buy, or grow food, then this film is a must see! Admission is $15 per person and includes a wine and cheese reception. RESERVE MOVIE TICKETS HERE or call us at 203-308-2584.
