This in from EcoAction:

Interested in sustainability and food? Excited about community gardening? Keen to meet some active community/environment groups in the ACT region?

This month, the Canberra Environment Centre joins with the ANU Environment Collective to bring you the Sustainability Network – GROWING OUR FUTURE. The evening focuses on cultivating and cross-pollinating ideas, inspiration and hope!

The network evening GROWING OUR FUTURE is delighted to screen the Australian premiere of the award winning film Grown in Detroit, followed by sustainability displays, discussions and drinks with a diverse range of the ACT region’s community groups and people interested in sustainability.

This is a great opportunity to meet people who are active in environmental sustainability in an informal and engaging way.
All Welcome!

GROWN IN DETROIT – “As a documentary about hope, the tenacity of the human spirit, and the silver linings in even the darkest of clouds, the Poppenks’ tale of The Motor City and its less-privileged residents is excellent, stunningly shot and well-devised.” – Cult of Cinema

“Catch this documentary if you have the chance. The sight of an urban environment, usually so far from nature, being transformed not only into a green place, but one that can sustain food (and bees! the bees love it in Detroit!) makes you feel hope where it might seem none is possible.- Sometimes from Scratch
