What makes food “good?” Does good indicate nutritious? Organic? Vegan? Affordable? Fair trade? Artisanal? Just plain tasty? Really, there is no one answer. Food trends come and go, and vouching for definitive, restrictive food rules can do more harm than good.

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Join us and NOFA-VT for a showing of the film After Winter, Spring.  The film is captures the roots of farm-to-table in France and the tenacity of a people who have taken it one season at a time for generations. One hundred years ago, half of the population of France were farmers. Now less than 3% farm. In the Périgord, a rural community fears they may be the last generation of family farmers in a region continuously cultivated for over five thousand years. The farmers’ stories are recorded by one of their neighbors, an American filmmaker who grew up on her family’s farm in Pennsylvania. Inter-weaving her story and theirs, the film explores the nature of the farming life and the impact of rapid modernization on families whose survival is tied to the land.
