On Monday night FLCWorks studio was busy with community members who are keen to better understand how their food is produced and eager to see how more their daily staples are produced locally.

The group watched the documentary film “GROW!” which tracks 20 young farmers in Georgia over the course of the growing season and explores their reasons for returning to the family farm or for diving into farming for the first time.

“GROW!” is the first offering in a new education activity for the community called the Monday Movie. These are educational films and community conversations sponsored by the Fayetteville-based Regenerative School. This inaugural Monday Movie series has a focus on food and farming. Upcoming films include “Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective” on Feb. 10 and “Wasted! The Story of Food Waste” on Feb. 17. The series will continue with more films in March.

Monday Movie starts at 6:30 p.m. in the FLCWorks Studio at 102 Elk Ave. N, up the stairs beside the Love Garden. A $2 donation and a can of healthy food for local food pantry organizations is suggested for admission but not required. Please call 931-993-6327 for more information.
