FILM "GROWING CHANGE"
PAUPERS PIT, OLD HALL HOTEL
Why do so many people go hungry when the world produces surplus food ? How will we feed people in the face of major environmental challenges? Is expanding large scale intensive agriculture the solution, or part of the problem? This documentary looks at the underlying causes of the 2008 food crisis, and then heads to Venezuela, where they are trying to develop a more equitable and sustainable system.
It does cost us a significant amount to bring these films to you, and we do have to ask for a donation towards this. We suggest around £4 per person, if you can afford it.
We're hoping that after the film, as well as the usual short discussion about the issues, we will be able to update you about an exciting project growing more food in Buxton - watch this space!
