WASHINGTON — The Gibbs Library and Maine Farmland Trust will present the film “Growing Local” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, in the Bryant Room of the library at 40 Old Union Road.

Prior to the film, refreshments will be provided by The Washington General Store. The film will be followed by a community discussion.

“Growing Local” is a collaboration between Maine Farmland Trust and Seedlight Pictures. The film points to the vibrancy and the growing pains of the local food movement in Maine, and the uncertain fate of the farmers and farmland that keep it alive.

The film contains three short vignettes: “Seeding A Dream,” “Pig Not Pork” and “Changing Hands.” Each focuses on a different challenge hindering the growth of the local food movement, and points toward possible solutions.

The screenings are free and open to everyone. Further information about this event can be found by calling the farmland trust at 338-6575 or the library at 845-2663. For more information about the trust, visit mainefarmlandtrust.org.
