ECO-FILM FEST: URBAN ROOTS

Join us on Wednesday, September 18th at 6pm at the Burlington Public Library for our 2019 Eco-Film Festival event "Urban Roots" 

Urban Roots is a documentary on the emergence of urban farming in Detroit, directed by Mark McInnis. It is the story of a group of dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally-grown, sustainably farmed food in a city where people have found themselves cut off from real food and limited to the offerings of fast food chains, mini-marts, and grocery stores stocked with processed food mostly from thousands of miles away.


Following this screening, we'll discuss and engage with the audience to see how this can apply to our community in Burlington - how can residents create an agricultural revolution? What are we doing now to ensure food security for the future?

Admission is FREE - Please RSVP in advance to receive notifications for the event.
