The Food Life Community Supported Agriculture Project will host the screening in Brechin City Hall on Tuesday (March 19) at 5.30pm.

The film tells the inspiring story of young British farmers standing up against the industrial food system and transforming the way they produce food - to heal the soil, our health and provide for local communities.

It follows three new farmers on the first year of their regenerative journey. As the trio strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses, they meet seasoned mentors who help them on their journey. They’re joined by other experts providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming and the planet.

It will also include an audience discussion Kate Everett, the widely experienced agroecological grower who has guided farms worldwide.

Anne Thomson, local farmer and The Food Life chairperson, said: “We’re excited to host this screening and to share the positive messages in the film to help shift Scottish food and farming towards more regenerative, agroecological practices for a more resilient system. We can’t wait to see the ideas and thoughts that come from the meaningful discussions that will follow. Thanks to the Angus Climate Hub for their support.”

Tickets are available via Eventbrite.
