Farming and gardening movie night at UH-MC

The second farming-focused movie night sponsored by Maui Farmers Union, Upcountry Sustainability and the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui will start at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the University of Hawaii Maui College’s Pilina building multipurpose room.

The four movies offered all focus on the rising movement to grow food locally and on the effort to encourage young people to be part of this movement.

“The Greenhorns” explores the lives of America’s young farming community – its spirit, practices and needs.

“Guerilla Gardening” is a TedTalk movie by Ron Finley about community garden building in South Los Angeles.

Stephen Ritz gives a TedTalk about school gardens in the New York City’s South Bronx called “Teacher Growing Green.”

Seven Maui teenagers will be featured in a short film called “Maui Eat Local Project,” sponsored by Maui Huliau Foundation. The filmmakers will be on hand as moviegoers watch the teens’ four-day adventure in eating only locally grown food.

Attendees are asked to bring a pupu to share and their own cup, plate and utensils to make this a trash-free event.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 573-9260.
