We invite you to join us for a special screening of the film GATHER, followed by a discussion with Native Agriculture advocates on July 14 at 6:30 pm ET.
Watching a film as a community can be a powerful shared experience.
“Unlike most news and social media, documentary storytelling can pull audiences into an immersive experience, taking the time to build empathy or understanding more deeply. They tell stories about the lives of real people in ways that help audiences make or see connections – about ideas or issues – that may otherwise seem abstract. The audience is often changed by the experience. That’s why documentary, especially when used strategically, has the capacity to prompt people to engage and act.” ~ The Power of Film
The film, Gather, helps reframe our local food system work.
“Regenerative agriculture really needs to follow the leadership of those Indigenous communities and communities of color such that it can realize its potential as a powerful climate solution.” ~ Liz Carlisle, author of Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming
