Black Swamp Conservancy to Host Sustainable Agriculture Event

 

Maumee, OH – Black Swamp Conservancy is inviting the public to explore the topic of local, sustainable agriculture by attending a showing of “The Biggest Little Farm” on Thursday, September 19th, followed by a panel discussion. The program, which is free and open to the public, will take place at the Maumee Indoor Theatre on Conant Street, starting at 6:00 in the evening.

 

Several local farms will have displays where attendees can meet the farmers, learn about their practices, and sign up for CSA (community supported agriculture) shares.

 

Black Swamp Conservancy, a northwest Ohio land conservation organization, is bringing together three local experts to speak on the role of ecologically-responsible farming in our local food economy: the owner and farmer of Herbaceous, Ltd. Michael Schiewer; owner of The Original Sub Shop, Maureen Brogan, and the manager of local grocery Phoenix Earth Food Co-op, Sean Fitzgerald. The discussion will be moderated by Danielle Kusner, CCA, an Agronomist with The Andersons who leads their initiatives in organics and soil health.

 

More information about this event can be found by going to Black Swamp Conservancy’s website at www.blackswamp.org, or by calling 419-833-1025.

 

About the film

 

The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature.

Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.

 

Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, The Biggest Little Farm provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.
