The documentary recounts the struggles farmers face to carry on the Maine farming tradition. A community discussion will be held after the screening. It is free and open to the public.

The film contains three short vignettes: “Seeding a Dream,” “Pig Not Pork,” and “Changing Hands.” Each focuses on a different challenge hindering the growth of the local food movement, and points toward possible solutions.

Growing Local is a collaboration between Maine Farmland Trust and Seedlight Pictures. The film points to the vibrancy and the growing pains of the local food movement in Maine, and the uncertain fate of the farmers and farmland that keep it alive.
