Food Inc Movie Screening Feb 5th 6:30pm

Hi Gardeners!

The Community Garden Resource Network is happy to let you know about an upcoming event Friday February 5… please share with people you think might be interested…

“FOOD, Inc.” is one of the scariest movies in recent years. The New York Times calls it “an informative, often infuriating activist documentary about the big business of feeding, (force-feeding) Americans all the junk that multinational corporate money can buy”.

If you want to know why many of us are seeking out nearby organic food sources and enjoying our home gardens, come join us at the Unitarian church on Friday Night, February 5th at 6:30 for a light supper

*FOOD, Inc* screening starting at 7:00 PM.

Free parking available in the Balmoral School lot next door.

The Green Sanctuary Committee and Community Garden
Unitarian Church of Calgary
