Farm Film and Music Series – Send Kelp Film Screening

Thursday, June 20 @ 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm

 

Join us this summer for a 5-part series featuring inspiring documentary films, local musicians, and meaningful conversations around equitable food systems, environmental justice, and caring for the planet.

Send Kelp - Frances Ward, a self-professed "Seaweed Nerd" and adventurer, is about to give up everything she's built in her life to start a kelp farm off the west coast of Canada. SEND KELP. follows Frances on an odyssey that brings her into the vast oceans of the Pacific where she intends to build one of the first farms of its kind in British Columbia. But to coax a crop from the wild Pacific, she'll need help from scientists, wild harvesters, and entrepreneurs who know the challenges and astonishing potential of this miraculous organism. And along the way, she'll find a glimmer of the hope that seaweed might provide not only for our planet, but for her, too.

6:00pm Gates open. Enjoy live music by Nathan & Jessie and tabling with local organizations.
