If you want to eat local food, we must preserve our local farms. Capay Valley’s Good Humus Produce provides healthy and delicious organic produce to our region, and is being preserved so that it will continue to do so for generations to come. The Last Crop is a documentary film that tells the story of Jeff and Annie Main, their farm and their vision.
One Farm at a Time is a new collaborative project that encourages investment in the future of the farms that provide our food and seeks to ensure the sustainability of local family farms for generations to come. Their first goal is to purchase an easement to preserve Good Humus Produce in Capay Valley. Then they will move on to protect other small farms and help make farming affordable for the next generation of farmers.
The Last Crop will be shown on Friday, April 30th at 5:30PM and 8:30PM at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-Op. This inspiring evening will include a discussion with the farmers and filmmaker. The cost is $10 and organic snacks, beer and wine will be available. To register, click here. While The Last Crop might not be entertaining for school-age children and younger, we think this would make an interesting outing to take your tween or teen to– and maybe out for coffee (or Jamba Juice) afterward for discussion.
We’ll see you there!
