Montclair Environmental Movie Night: Sourlands

Montclair Environmental Affairs office and Community Green present another eye-opening environmental movie as seen through the eyes of activists, farmers, and journalists - SOURLANDS - a provocative tale of ecology, energy, and agriculture right here in New Jersey.

In the Sourlands of New Jersey, a rampaging deer herd, invasive plants, and wholesale habitat destruction threaten the local ecosystem. Farmers in the surrounding valley battle against high land prices, high property taxes, and increasingly erratic weather patterns. A group of local engineers searches for new ways to save energy and stop global warming. Pay close attention, and the challenges facing this community look a lot like the challenges facing ecosystems, farmers, and energy visionaries everywhere.

The message of cautious hope presented in the film is just as universal: To start solving complicated environmental problems, we need to forgo quick fixes and start restoring the natural world – and people's connection to it – from the forest floor up. Join us for the film and discussion following. This is one of a series of free Environmental Film Screenings put on by For more information contact Marnie Vyff at[masked] or [masked].

    Great evening! The movie was VERY interesting, very well made. Lots of good information and it was hopeful. It's nice to see New Jersey's interesting habitats portrayed in this way. A good antidote to all the Sopranos overload of the last few days!

      Hey Paul, it's Jean (we met at Ashokan). Sorry you didn't make it to this - it was great! Really nice bunch of folks from the Montclair group; they are really active in a lot of interesting things. There is an organic garden tour in Montclair on Saturday, July 13; here's the link http://www.cornucopia...­ Pat Kenschaft (whose garden is on the tour) was at the movie and I was really digging talking to her! Anyway, hope you are having a great trip. See you around one of these days.

    I got to share a meal with Jared, the filmmaker, just last week. His other film, The Farmer and the Horse, is fantastic!
