Friday, April 25, 2008 | King Corn film screening
Doors open at 7:00pm, film at 7:30pm, $7, All ages
King Corn is about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. Ian and Curt move from Boston to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America?s most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat?and how we farm. Features interviews with author Michael Pollan. Followed by Q&A with filmmaker Ian Cheney.

Saturday, April 26, 2008 | Cultivating Community Kid's Event
10-12 am, free, ages 8-12 suggested
Good (and fun!) things happen when you know where your food comes from. For 8 growing seasons, Cultivating Community has been helping kids and their families get more connected to the land that sustains us?and fighting hunger and environmental degradation in the process. Join Cultivating Community for a morning of hands-on fun with compost, plants and food.

Saturday, April 26, 2008 | An Evening With Eliot Coleman and Barbara Damrosch
Doors open at 7:00pm, talk at 7:30pm, $8, $5 for SPACE Members, All ages
Eliot Coleman and Barbara Damrosch are legends in the world of gardening. Their books, including Barbara's newly updated Garden Primer and Eliot's The New Organic Grower, are well-thumbed staples on most gardeners' bookshelves. Together they run Four Season Farm, an experimental market garden in Harborside, Maine, which produces vegetables year-round, and has become a nationally recognized model of small-scale sustainable agriculture. Tonight offers an intimate evening as the first couple of organic gardening offer their thoughts and reflections on over 40 years in the garden. Introducing Eliot and Barbara will be MOFGA Executive Director, Russell Libby.

Sunday, April 27, 2008 | Food Source Roundtable
Doors open at 7:00pm, film at 7:30pm, $6, Free for SPACE Members, All ages
Begins with a screening of the short film Fridays at the Farm (19 min), a lovingly-made personal essay by a filmmaker trying to reconnect his family with the source of the food they consume. Followed by a round-robin discussion with local advocates of sustainable food, including Roger Doiron of Kitchen Gardeners International, John Bliss and Stacy Brenner of Broadturn Farm and David Buchanan, Slow Food Portland organizer and proponent of heritage crops.­

I would love to go to this, but it conflicts with Peace Action Maine's
Annual Peace Supper at Woodford's Congregational Church. Too bad, the peace because the peace community which usually fills the church hall would
be exactly the type of group that would want to hear Eliot and Barbara!

Hope you have a good turnout though,

It is unfortunate that we're overlapping with PAM's Peace Supper, we're big fans of the work they do in our community. I would suggest that the other two Food + Farm evening events, while maybe slightly less star-studded, with both be really great surrogates.

We'll do just that, F+F.

I guess I was also trying to hint at the importance of checking beforehand before settling on a date for such an inviting event, though of course you may have had to take the dates given you.
