Cape Cod Dietitian and organic farmer share documentary at Cape Cod Beer for Art Week Boston April 28, 2017 at 6:30 - 8pm. 24 states. 24 farms. 50 hours of footage & interviews. This is the story of the local food movement from farmers across the country.
In February 2012, Nicole Cormier, Registered Dietitian and Jim Lough, Organic Farmer, both from Massachusetts, embarked on a coast-to-coast road trip, stopping at one organic farm in every state along the route. Each visit was documented with candid interviews of the farmers and vivid photographs of the farms.
This event is featured in this year’s Art Week Boston. This is the third viewing of the documentary that has included a variety of panelists from local farmers, local food advocates like Elspeth Hay from The Local Food Report on NPR and blogger of Diary of a Locavore. Sustainable CAPE and Dr. Sidhartha of Emerald Physicians shared passions of their new program, FlavoRx connecting patients to excess of local fruits and vegetables. We’ve also heard from David Dewitt, helping students at Nauset Middle School run their very own greenhouse. The students bring there famous pea shoots with the Orleans Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9-12pm. There will be more local food enthusiasts on April 28, 2017 on a discussion panel that will leave you feeling inspired.
The documentary is 36 minutes with a local food panel to follow. All proceeds go to a scholarship for Project Woods. This will help an individual attend a wellness retreat in the woods with Nicole Cormier, RD, LDN + Becky Nadeau in Welfleet on May 19-21, 2017. Visit www.projectwoods.com to learn more.
