WASHINGTON — The film “Growing Local” will be screened at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7, in the Bryant Room of the Gibbs Library, 40 Old Union Road.

Refreshments from the Washington General Store will be available prior to the film. A community discussion is planned after the film, according to a news release from the library.

“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, presented by the library and Maine Farmland Trust, are free and open to everyone.
