Connecting through Food and Film

Mark your calendars for the upcoming celebration of local food and the screening of “Connecting to the Land” on Monday, March 9 at 6:30 pm at the Elks Club.

We will start the evening with some small samples of good local food along with friends and conversation. We will give a short update on progress made in the last year in local food initiatives by involving our community, sharing knowledge and improving access to local food. Immediately following will be the viewing of the FPC film compiled this past year about our local food.

The film “Connecting to the Land – A Day with Three Producers” gives us an insight into the lives of three local producers whom most of us know from the Red Lodge Farmers Market: Healthy Meadows: Chia, Ivan & Yarrow Thrane and their intern Olivia Brockmeier Laurel Farmers Market: Les & Greg Johnson Wholesome Foods: Patricia & Dick Espenscheid, Marguerite Jodry and Robin Taylor

This beautifully made film by Mark Edwards is about 15 minutes long. It was filmed last summer at their farms and ranches. This film gives us a better understanding of how much work but also love and passion is involved in getting our food to the table.

We hope you will join us and bring friends and family to this event. This is a great opportunity to meet some of these wonderful people growing, raising and processing our delicious local food.
