Green Film Series Presents "The Need to GROW"

Post Date:01/31/2020 2:30 PM

Join the City of Novato Sustainability Program on February 20, 2020 at Novato City Hall, 901 Sherman Avenue, for a free screening of The Need to GROW, a documentary that explores both the opportunities, and the struggles, of challenging the status quo. Doors open at 6:00 and the screening starts at 6:30pm

With an estimated 60 years of farmable soil left on Earth, The Need To GROW offers an intimate look into the hearts of activists and innovators in the food movement: an 8 year old girl challenges the ethics of a beloved organization, a renegade farmer struggles to keep his land as he revolutionizes resource efficient agriculture, and an accomplished visionary inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing soil regeneration technology.

The Need to GROW delivers alarming evidence on the importance of healthy soil — revealing not only the potential of localized food production working with nature, but our opportunity as individuals to help regenerate our planet’s dying soils and participate in the restoration of the Earth. Narrated by Rosario Dawson.

Presented  in partnership with Sustainable Novato and Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden

The event is free to attend, but pre-registration is recommended
