Documentary Screening: "The Last Crop"

We are pleased to invite the campus community and general public to a screening of the new documentary “The Last Crop” on Monday November 6, 6pm in the Silver Maple Room, Davis Center. The Last Crop is an intimate exploration into the lives of small family farmers in California’s Central Valley. It is an exploration into who grows what we eat and what it takes to be a farmer. Inextricably woven within these organic pioneers’ story is their ten-year pursuit to ensure their productive farm’s future. That narrative echoes across our nation, as our aging farming population confronts the fragile balance of farm succession, affordable farmland, and ultimately preserving their land for future farmers. The Last Crop captures the intractable nature of sustaining small family farms in the U.S. and the stake we all have in making certain these farms survive and thrive. Refreshments available.

Opening remarks: 5:40, Film starts: 6pm, followed by Q&A with UVM faculty members 

The Dudley H. Davis Center is located at 590 Main Street, Burlington VT 05401 (Parking on campus after hours is free)
