UNITY — Sebasticook Regional Land Trust will celebrate eight years of successes at its annual Conservation Celebration Saturday at the Unity College Center for Performing Arts.

According to a press release, a 5:30 p.m. Local Foods Feast will feature locally grown and produced ingredients from more than a dozen central Maine farms, catered by Melissa Bastien and sponsored by UniTel. Menu items include roast pork and chicken, candied cushaw squash, baked apples and onions, dressing, breads, desserts and more.

Following dinner will be a screening of “Betting the Farm,” a new documentary film about three of the farm families who helped to create Maine’s Own Organic (MOO) Milk Company.

After the movie, filmmaker Cecily Pingree and Bill Eldridge of MOO Milk will participate in a Question and Answer session moderated by John Zavodny of Unity College. The film is co-presented with the Unity College Center for Environmental Arts and Humanities.

Tickets for the evening cost $25 each (advanced sales only), or $8 for the film only. Proceeds will support Sebasticook Regional Land Trust’s efforts to conserve clean water, recreational opportunities and working lands in central Maine.

Since 2004, the Trust has conserved nearly 3,000 acres of working forest, family farmland and public-access recreational lands in central Maine.
