Get Healthy De Soto has teamed up with the Franciscan Sisters to have a movie showing of Truck Farm. It is a movie that tells the story of a new generation of quirky urban farmers. Viewers are trucked across New York to see the city’s funkiest urban farms, and to find out if America’s largest city can learn to feed itself. Blending serious exposition with serious silliness, Truck Farm entreats viewers to ponder the future of urban farming, and to consider whether sustainability needs a dose of whimsy to be truly sustainable. Featuring chef Dan Barber, nutritionist Marion Nestle, explorer Henry Hudson and a very lonely seagull. With musical narration by The Fishermen Three.
The showing is FREE and will be on April 11th and will start at 7PM. It is expected to last until about 8:30PM to allow for dialgoue. Hot cider and popcorn will be served. The event will be held at the DeSoto Central Apartments.
