Coastal Roots Farm presents lineup for Farm 2022 film and music series

Coastal Roots Farm, a non-profit Jewish community farm and education center in Encinitas, recently announced its 2022 farm film and music lineup designed to educate and entertain the community on this planet.

La Ferme invites families, friends and the entire community to join them this summer for an entertaining five-episode series. The series will feature inspiring documentary films, local musicians, and meaningful conversations about fair food systems, environmental justice, and protecting the planet. Participants will learn from dedicated activists, scientists, farmers and politicians how regenerative agriculture has the potential to save the soil, rebuild communities, fight climate change and feed the world.

On June 23, the Farm will hold its first film screening of the “Gather” series, which tells the story of Indian resilience and the rebirth of Indigenous food systems. The documentary looks at Native American movements that aim to rediscover identity and reclaim sovereignty through ancestral food. Doors will open at 7 p.m. with live music, meet-and-greets, and a chance to speak with local organizations and individuals in the community. The screening of the film will start at 8:30 p.m.

Everyone is welcome. Guests are encouraged to bring their own picnic blankets, lawn chairs, food and beverages to enjoy an evening on the farm.

July 21 – “An ocean of plastic”
