Film, feast to benefit land trust

Oct 12, 2012
“Betting The Farm” is making the Midcoast rounds.

Unity — Sebasticook Regional Land Trust’s annual Conservation Celebration and Local Foods Feast again will feature a wonderful meal followed by a screening of the Moo Milk documentary “Betting The Farm” Saturday, Oct. 20 at Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St.

For the meal, which will be served at 5:30 p.m., caterer Melissa Bastien will feature ingredients sourced from more than a dozen local farms and producers. “Betting The Farm,” screened at 7 p.m., is a verité documentary that follows three farmers — Aaron Bell, Vaughn Chase and Richard Lary — and their families through the tumultuous first two years of MOO Milk. With intimate access to their triumphs and disappointments, the film gives audiences a rare glimpse at the real lives of American farmers at a crossroads. A Q&A with director Cecily Pingree will follow the screening.

Cost is $25 for dinner and the movie (limited tickets); and $8 for the screening only. The event is sponsored by UniTel and co-presented by the Unity College Center For Environmental Arts and Humanities. Tickets can be purchased through the Sebasticook Regional Land Trust by calling 948-3766 or sending email to Jennifer@SebasticookRLT.org.
