Folks listen intently to the quiz questions following the screening – an organic eco screened ‘homegrown’ tee is at stake!
Film, Food and Fun
PTF once again hosted a successful film & food night (thanks to all those who attended and volunteered!).
The event drew over 100 people – 25 of whom were Freedom Gardeners! Whoohoo. Actually, nearly 150 rvp’d so there were quite a few no shows.
Thank you to those of you who brought homegrown produce, seeds to swap! We hope that you continue this sharing spirit with neighbors and fellow Freedom Gardeners online. ( Soon FG website will have the capability for swap and meetup arrangements.)
The food spread was incredible – everyone did an awesome job to bring homegrown or local foods. Kudos to everyone for striving to make this a truly localized event.
Of course, running such an event with so many folks, we weren’t able to meet and greet each of you personally. Good to see new and familiar faces in such a inspirational and energetic atmosphere.
After the film screening, Farmer D hosted a fun pop quiz and gave away some free Homegrown Revolution ™ tees to the winners.
Many asked, Will we do this again next month? We’ll be taking October off for religious observances and work on web development and future plans (next year), but we hope to pull off a harvest food and film night come November. So stay tuned for details. Or, as we mentioned at the event, suggestions and ideas are welcome.
Thanks, again, for making this another successul and inspirational event. Your support (donations) are greatly needed and appreciated as we grow further in web and community outreach.
