Film & food discussion: ‘Detroit: Rising from the Ashes’

Thursday 28th February, 7pm
Dartmouth Arms, York Rise, NW5
014 (1)Capitalism abandoned Detroit years ago, leaving it derelict and overgrown. Now, communities are being rebuilt through growing their own food in 1,300 urban gardens, and feeding those who do not have jobs or access to fresh food. This powerful and inspiring film tells the story of those who are taking control of their own food production.
Recent UK press reports say that consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables has declined in the UK as the financial situation worsens. The Transition movement aims to play a part in changing this, and helping people to eat fresh, seasonal and local food, regardless of income.
So please join us for a night of discussion and inspiration to start this year’s food growing season. After the screening we’ll discuss how Transition can combat food poverty and food waste in Dartmouth Park, and one of our growing coordinators Susan Seymour, will present our food growing, garden sharing and fruit harvesting projects for 2013.
