Dinner and a Movie - Meeting Place Organic Film

Date: 
Wednesday, November 9, 2016 - 6:30pm

Local, organic, and sustainable are words we associate with food production today, but 40 years ago, when Fran and Tony McQuail started farming in Southwestern Ontario, they were barely spoken. Since 1973, the McQuails have been helping to build the organic farming community and support the next generation of organic farmers. This is a documentary about the McQuails that explores the very real ways their farm has contributed to the long term ecological viability of agriculture in Ontario, and is a call to action for all those who believe there is a better way to take care of our planet and feed the world. 

We are excited to be hosting one of 3 screeenings of this film to take place this fall. The stars of the documentary, Fran and Tony McQuail, will be at every one of these screenings for a Q & A session. (Tony McPhail will be joining us for the Perth screening.)
