A Farm for the Future 16 Mar 2012

To mark Climate Week, Wanstead & Woodford Friends of the Earth invite you to a free film screening of "A Farm for the Future", the celebrated BBC documentary by Rebecca Hosking, also of Modbury plastic bag fame. Rebecca returns to her family's farm in Devon to explore effective, low-energy ways of farming without the use of fossil fuels. She was awarded an MBE in 2010 for services to the environment.

The food system emits four of the greenhouse gases associated with climate change and the livestock industry alone, from farm to fork, currently creates an estimated 18% of the world's total annual carbon emissions. But it's not only temperatures that are rising. So is the price of oil. There's no getting away from it, we need to eat - all 7 billion of us. So how would we cope without all of this oil?
Come along and find out...

Wanstead & Woodford Friends of the Earth present:

FREE Film Screening of 'A Farm for the Future'
at Wanstead Library, Churchill Room
on Friday March 16th 2012
Time: 6.30-9.30

Food (snacks, tea, coffee, soft drinks) available.
Incorporating: Brief introductory talk, Short Quiz (prizes for correct answers), Feedback form AND Free Goody Bags.

The film 'A Farm for the Future' is a short (50 minute) production, made originally for BBC2, by a young farmer in Devon looking to adapt her inherited family farm to meet the challenges of climate change, peak oil, and economic downturn; a very upbeat production rather than the doom-and-gloom usually often associated (rather unfairly) with ‘green’ films.
