May 20: ‘Our Food Future’ from Wild & Scenic Film Festival

The E3 Initiative For Citizen Engagement On The Lower Shore is pleased to present a virtual Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Thursday, May 20th. Virtual lobby doors open at 6:30 pm, with films beginning at 7:00 pm. Register and buy your tickets here!

How food is grown affects our planet in a multitude of ways. From monocrops and tilling to vertical farming and rotational grazing, the ‘Our Food Future’ films explore questions of ‘to till or not to till’, biodynamic, organic, and more. At the root of it all, how can we grow food with practices that heal the planet and nourish our health?

Register and buy your tickets here, and be sure to purchase some raffle tickets as well. Tickets starting at just $10. All proceeds will benefit the E3 Initiative.

Nine films will explore different sustainable farming practices that prioritize the land and natural resources and share practical, efficient methods to growing and harvesting food:

  • Beebox
  • Biodynamic Agriculture: Farming in Service of Life
  • Vertical: The Future of Farming
  • Herd Impact
  • Common Ground
  • If You Can Hear My Voice; The Fight to Ban Chlorpyrifos
  • A Fisher’s Right to Know
  • If We Take Care of the Land and Water, It Takes Care of Us
  • Farmscape Ecology

The E3 Initiative For Citizen Engagement On The Lower Shore is a collaborative of Assateague Coastal Trust, Center for Progressive Reform, Chesapeake Legal Alliance, Waterkeepers Chesapeake, and the Environmental Integrity Project that began in 2019.
