The locally filmed Patch: A Time to Build Up Farms will be showcased at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in the Parish Hall at 7 pm. This film was created and produced by Vancouver School of Arts and Academics student Justine Hanrahan as part of the school’s Art for Change theme. The movie explores the importance of local sustainable farms in Clark County and features Urban Abundance’s own Warren Neth. The film includes interviews from local farms such as Inspiration Plantation, Storytree Farm, Osprey Organic Farm and Dee Creek. Stores and organizations featured are Vancouver Co-op, Neighbors Market and Urban Abundance. The showing is a chance to learn more about the agriculture in the area and speak with the farmers who provide Clark County residents sustainable products. Patch: A Time to Build Up Farms focuses on the importance of farms and how people can be a part of patching up the local farm economy. The director’s artistic vision is symbolized by a scarecrow being patched up with various patches which represent the different farms or organizations repairing the farming community in Clark County. The showing is free of charge and a great chance to meet farmers and gather information about the agriculture around you.
