Slow Money Austin/Slow Food Texas: Three-Part Film Series - #2
Thursday, April 19, 2012 -
6:00pm to 9:00pm
Slow Money Austin
Slow Food Texas is happy to invite you to join us at a wonderful gathering at
the UT Concho Community Garden for a 3-part film series and potluck. (Address:
2108 Concho St. 78722) Each movie will precede with a potluck at 6pm, followed
by the film screening around 6:30pm. We will have chairs and blankets, but if
you want comfier lawn chairs or your own blanket space then the more the
Forks Over Knives on April 19th, "examines the profound claim that most, if not
all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even
reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods."
And then the Real Dirt on Farmer John on April 26th is sure to be a fun time
with, "the epic tale of a maverick Midwestern farmer. Castigated as a pariah in
his community, Farmer John bravely transforms his farm amidst a failing economy,
vicious rumors, and arson. He succeeds in creating a bastion of free expression
and a revolutionary form of agriculture in rural America."
Also sponsoring the event is The Campus Environmental Center, The Student
Nutritional Awareness Campaign, Slow Food UT, The Food Studies Project (aka the
UT Food Community), Oxfam UT, and the UT Gardening Committee.
Each is likely to include interesting guests ready for stimulating conversation,
so we hope to see you and your potluck dish there for a phenomenal month of
documentaries among delicious food and interesting people!
