Transition Berkeley Presents: Edible City Film and Share the Harvest Potluck

Thursday | July 03, 2014 | 6:30 pm — 9:00 pm

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall | 1924 Cedar Street, Berkeley, CA 94709

Transition Berkeley invites you to join us for a sharing of our local harvest pot luck dinner and “Edible City: Grow the Revolution”, a fun fast-paced film about Bay Area urban farming. Our special guest speaker will be Wanda Stewart, farmer and community organizer from Obsidian Farm in Berkeley.

Our featured film “Edible City: Grow the Revolution” will take us to nearby farms like the Gil Tract, Green Faerie Farm, and City Slicker Farms where we meet some of the pioneers in the Bay Area’s sustainable food movement. Learning from their experiences we can see the possibilities of growing our food very close to home and loving it.

Wanda Stewart has been working with neighbors building community and economic resilience while raising impressive crops on a small city lot. We think you’ll be inspired by the ways she’s brought people together at Obsidian Farms to improve their lives by cooperating, trading and sharing skills. After the film we’ll talk with Wanda about how we might replicate this model of a new way of living in an urban environment.

This event is cosponsored by Transition Berkeley, Obsidian Farm and BFUU’s Social Justice Committee.

Bring: Potluck item from your own local harvest if possible.
