Film Screening and Vegetarian Potluck in Pasadena

Our friends at Path to Freedom – Urban Homestead in Pasadena have extended an invitation to Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends to a late December film screening and vegetarian potluck. Please see the details below:

On Sunday, December 28, 2008, Path to Freedom – Urban Homestead will host a vegetarian potluck followed by a screening of the documentary Broken Limbs: Apples, Agriculture and the New American Farmer.

This event will be held from 5:00-9:00 PM at 626 Cypress Avenue in Pasadena. Suggested donation is $10. Space is limited so reservations are necessary. To reserve, please call 626.844.4586 or register online at www.pathtofreedom.com/form/eventregistration.htm.

Broken Limbs: Apples, Agriculture and the New American Farmer (Jamie Howell and Guy Evans, 2004, 57 min.), an Emmy-nominated documentary, explores the model of sustainable agriculture and outlines ways in which any individual can play a role in saving America’s farmers.

For the vegetarian potluck, attendees are encouraged to contribute food produced within a 100-mile radius of their homes (Santa Barbara to San Diego).  If that’s not possible, then strive to purchase organic foods grown within the closest distance.
