We have obtained approval to screen a recently released film, "Kiss the Ground", which examines the effects of industrial farming practices on the world's agricultural land, and the potential benefits of regenerative farming techniques, not only to heal the land, but in assisting the drawdown of carbon from the atmosphere, to reduce the effects of climate change. https://kissthegroundmovie.com/
The film showcases some amazing examples of restoration projects from various parts of the world, and how they have transformed landscapes, and restored hope in the ability of the Earth to heal itself.
As this is a film about the future of the Earth's food production capability, I urge you all to attend, and to invite a friend who may be involved in food production, be it meat, grain, fruit or vegetable.
As usual, we will conclude with a cuppa and something to eat, and a chance to chat about the film, and of course, the year that was!!
We hope to see you all at the John Cooper Hall, Benalla Uniting Church, 7.30pm on the 26th.
As we may have limits on numbers attending, please RSVP to email: firstname.lastname@example.org or simply reply to this email with names attending.
Of course, covid protocols will need to be followed: stay home if unwell, wear facemasks, sanitize hands on arrival, and observe correct social distancing.
