Growing Local: Seen Far and Wide

It’s hard to believe how well received this film has been in Maine and beyond. We have steady requests from people all over the country like this one:

“What are the procedures to arrange a film screening of Growing Local in Memphis, TN? We are facing some tough pressure from local leaders and want to show how Maine and the Maine Farmland Trust has worked to build up young famers and create a thriving local food economy.”

We’ll send him the film, as we have with so many locations of all types throughout the US. In Maine, the Maine Farmland Trust has screened it in roughly 40 venues from large movie theaters to coop markets to libraries and farm-to-table restaurants. The word from MFT is that these shows are consistently packed with standing room only— full of Mainers eager to hear what they can do to help support local farming. After each showing we require a panel discussion with local farmers or leaders to discuss how the issues in the film can be best tackled in each community.
