Feeding Ourselves is a highly reviewed documentary about the search for food sovereignty in the Kootenays. It weaves intimate stories from the hopes and convictions of Kootenay farmers and producers as they navigate undercurrents of uncertainty with our food system. Driven to embrace a livelihood supporting regional sustainability and resilience, these people help us appreciate the significance and potential of feeding ourselves.
The Creston Public Library is screening Feeding Ourselves on Saturday, November 9th at 2 pm. Each month the Creston Public Library offers a screening of one of the latest hard hitting or informative releases for viewing and discussion. Everyone is welcome, admittance is free, and there is no need to register.
Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. These farmers are practically our neighbours, and they might inform and inspire discussion. How do we create a local food system? Watch and listen to Kootenay farmers, restauranteurs, and food artisans dish on the subject in this local documentary that features some of our Creston locals.
