This year, Vermont Land Trust is hosting a series of events related to our upcoming art exhibit at the Shelburne Museum, entitled Eyes on the Land. Check back soon to find out about these events, download a passport, and see the new Eyes on the Land website!
April 2 at 7:00 pm
Merrill’s Roxy Cinema, Burlington
Join us on April 2 at Merrill’s Roxy Cinema in Burlington for the Vermont screening of Occupy the Farm. This documentary tells the story of a community's fight to save public land for urban farming. When 200 farmers march to the gates of the last farmland in the urban East Bay near Oakland, they don't carry signs protesting University of California's plans to build a shopping center. Instead, they carry tents, tools and 15,000 seedlings.
Tickets can be purchased in advance of the show through the Roxy website. Attendees will be entered in a raffle to win movie passes from the Roxy or a $100 gift certificate to Half Pint Farm, to be used at the farmer's market starting in May.
After the screening there will be a panel discussion, moderated by Gil Livingston, President of the Vermont Land Trust. Panelists include Jon Ramsay, Director of the Farmland Access Program at VLT, Chuda Dhaurali, Farmer at Pine Island Farm in Colchester, and Jessica Hyman, Executive Director of the Vermont Community Garden Network.
