The real dirt on Farmer John, April 12

Here is an upcoming event from Visionary Edge:

Hi Moviegoers!

“It ain’t easy being green!” That’s the story and John Peterson, an eccentric midwestern artist, writer and traditional farmer, is sticking to it. This is a film of the tribulations and successes of maintaining a family farm in an era of production farming, about holding to the values of community and healthy food, about taking care of the land in a respectful and sustainable way. It’s about a lifestyle that is rapidly disappearing.

This coming Saturday, April 12th, we will be screening the award-winning and film festival audience favorite, The Real Dirt on Farmer John, a truly original and often hilarious film about the challenges of running a financially viable organic family farm. Al Gore calls this film “unbelieveably creative with an important message. I’ve watched this film probably ten times.”

Original music for the film was written by Lesley Littlefield, “the other bumblebee” in the movie. Lesley is coming to Half Moon Bay to perform live for us, a real treat for sure!

After the film, Lesley, along with our own Ned Conwell of Blue House Farm in Pescadero, and Erin Tormey of Coastside Farmers Market will answer audience questions and discuss organic farming, the importance of eating local, as well as the value of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).

Find out how you can help reduce global warming, eat healthier food, and have fun all at the same time!

Saturday April 12th, advance tickets $10, door $15. Doors open at 7:00, film at 7:30pm. Johnson House Depot, 110 Higgins Purisima Rd, Half Moon Bay. Call 650-560-0200 or email
