Films of Vision and Hope Presents
The Last Crop Join Transition Silicon Valley and World Centric for a special showing of a new film about agriculture in the Bay Area.
Filmmaker Chuck Schultz will be present for a showing of his film, The Last Crop. This is the story of farmers Jeff and Annie Main, their Good Humus Farm and how they are planning to preserve it as a working, organic farm for future generations. After the film, Chuck will lead a discussion about issues farmers encounter in staying on the land and what we can help them do about them.

World Centric, 2121 Staunton Ct, Palo Alto CA 94306
"Sustainability is the big new catch phrase but what does that mean? Does it mean that we take care of our soil? Does it mean we take care of our water sources and our air? The true issue to me is sustaining farmers" -- Annie Main, Good Humus Farm
Suggested donation to help defray travel and film costs: $5.00 - $10.00

Join us for the first opportunity of the new year to share garden bounty. Bring what you have to share; take home something you don’t. Bring your homegrown fruit, vegetables, eggs, herbs, honey, and flowers!
Throughout the Bay Area, neighbors are coming together for sharing locally grown, fresh produce. Our Palo Alto sharing event is supported by a coalition of community ecological organizations and neighborhood groups including: Acterra, Barron Park Green Team, Barron Park Garden Network,Barron Park Assn, Common Ground, City of Palo Alto Community Gardens, Slow Food South Bay, Transition Palo Alto and Transition Silicon Valley.
The Common Ground store is open during the event, so plan to stop in to get any supplies you need to continue your garden bounty. Also, the event is located only 3 blocks from the California Ave Farmers’ Market, which is open from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. You will have time to shop or have lunch at the market after the event.The joy comes not from trying to keep things forever, but from keeping them well. - Gary Thorp, Zen teacher
