Come out for a screening of the documentary film "Homegrown" (50 minutes) - Saturday October 3rd, screenings at 10:30 am and 12:30 pm, at the Westcott Community Center, corner of Euclid Ave. and Westcott St., Syracuse, NY.
HOMEGROWN follows the Dervaes family who run a small Organic farm in the heart of urban Pasadena, California. While "living off the grid", they harvest over 6,000 pounds of produce on less than a quarter of an acre, make their own bio diesel, power their computers with the help of solar panels, and maintain a website that gets 4,000 hits a day. The film is an intimate human portrait of what it's like to live like "Little House on the Prairie" in the 21st Century.
We will be holding a short open meeting panel discussion at the conclusion of each screening where we will discuss reactions to the film, Permaculture/homesteading in Syracuse and surrounding areas, and activities from affinity groups in the area. Hope to see you there!
