Outdoor Film Screening: How We Grow
September 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm
Join us for a free outdoor screening of ‘How We Grow’ at the Newpark Amphitheater just outside of the Swaner EcoCenter on September 9th!
Bring a blanket or low chairs, snacks, drinks, etc. and join us for some family friendly outdoor movie magic! Come early to claim your spot and visit our partners and local producers at their booths to learn about how choosing local has positive impacts on our environment. Partner and producer booths will be open at 7 pm, the movie will start at 8.
HOW WE GROW seeks to tell the story that digs deeper- beyond the farmers’ markets and local food access- into the ways in which communities rebuild themselves around agriculture. The film is a coming-of-age story of a community re-learning how to work together and growing stronger in the process. Inspired by the drive and dedication of the next generation of agricultural leaders in the Roaring Fork Valley, the community explores how to overcome pressing issues.
Land access, income inequality, and a short growing season turn from barriers into levers as these ambitious young farmers discover ways to get healthy, sustainably produced, locally grown, nutrient-dense food onto the tables of everyone in the community.
The East Canyon Creek Watershed Committee, in partnership with Swaner Preserve & EcoCenter, Trout Unlimited, Summit County & Summit County Stormwater, Ecology Bridge, USU Extension – Summit County, Park City Municipal, Summit Land Conservancy, Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District, and other watershed partners, is excited to bring this free film screening and upcoming water conservation events, Trout Friendly Lawns, and stream restoration opportunities to Summit County this summer.
