Announcing Urban Ag on the Move! A Film and Food Event

Our 3rd annual film fundraiser is coming up! This year we’re screening Truck Farm, a documentary about the adventures of a New Yorker who is determined to grow his own food New York City’s concrete jungle, and his creative solution: a mobile farm in the back of his old pickup truck.
Plan to stick around for a discussion after the movie: it’ll feature our very own Bea Trickett, plus Robert Egger, Joelle Johnson, and Karli
Hurlebaus from DC Central Kitchen. We’ll be talking about ways urban agriculture brings fresh food to city-dwellers – including a peek at DC’s very own truck farm!
Here’s the details:
- Doors open and refreshments served at 6:30 pm. Film screening will start promptly at 7:30 pm, with discussion to follow.
- The Letelier Theater is located in the Georgetown neighborhood at
3251 Prospect Street, NW, Upper Courtyard. For directions and parking information, visit http://leteliertheater.com/directions/.
