Haddenham in Transition's next event is a screening of the film 'Growing Change' at the Rose and Thistle, Station Rd, Haddenham on Tuesday 19th February at 8pm prompt. Admission is free.
Growing Change follows director Simon Cunich's journey to understand why current food systems leave hundreds of millions of people in hunger. After hearing about efforts in Venezuela to develop a more equitable and sustainable food and agriculture system, the filmmaker heads there to see if it's working and find out what we might be able to learn from this giant experiment.
It's an inspirational story full of lively characters, thought provoking insights, stunning scenery and ideas to transform the food system.
We'll be screening this one-hour film and then discussing some of its issues and efforts to introduce alternatives to the current food system in the Haddenham area.
