If anyone feels like driving in the complete opposite direction of our Apple Harvest Party to see Farmer John (it's the same day), here goes:


"Screening of the Real Dirt on Farmer John at Angelic Organics
Learning Center
What: Enjoy the award-winning movie The Real Dirt on Farmer
John with an outdoor
screening at Angelic Organics. A lively discussion with Farmer
John Peterson himself
will take place after the movie. Farmer John has finally
returned to his farm after 5 years
of touring the world with the film.
This epic tale of a maverick Midwestern farmer has won 31
awards, and been seen by
millions on television and in theaters throughout the world. An
outcast in his
community, Farmer John bravely stands amidst a failing economy,
vicious rumors, and
violence. By melding the traditions of family farming with the
power of art and free
expression, this powerful story of transformation and renewal
heralds a resurrection of
farming in America.
The Peterson family farm has become Angelic Organics, one of
the largest Community
Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the United States, a
beacon of today?s booming
organic farming movement.
Proceeds from the movie will benefit Angelic Organics Learning
Center, the nonprofit
educational partner to the vegetable farm, which offers
programs at Angelic Organics
farm and at other farms and urban growing sites in northern
Illinois and southern
Wisconsin.
Cost: $15/person
