Please join the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative for our Food Justice Movie Night! AUNI is one of several organizations in the country co-hosting the Tierralismo Good Earth Film Tour. We’ll be showing the Cuban documentary, Tierralismo: Stories from a Cooperative Farm on Thursday, April 23rd at 6:00 pm in the Rotunda (4014 Walnut St). Tierralismo is about the history and practices of one of Cuba’s most successful urban farms, the Organoponico Vivero Alamar (Alamar Organic Cooperative). The filmmaker Alejandro Ramirez, and one of the co-founders of the Organoponico, Isis Salcines will be joining us for the screening and will answer questions and be part of a discussion after the film. This event is free and open to the public and will feature snacks made by youth from the Sayre Garden Squad.
