To Make A Farm, a feature-length documentary film exploring local food and farming, will show in Wolfville March 29th. A discussion will follow with members of the local farming community.
To Make A Farm, named one of the ten most popular Canadian films at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) in 2011, depicts the struggles and triumphs of a season on a fledgling farm through the eyes of five young people who have decided to become small-scale farmers, despite having no backgrounds in this demanding profession.

The Acadia Community Farm (ACF) began with the vision of providing local, organic produce to the University dining hall, while also serving as a community garden. Entering our fourth season, the ACF has evolved into a community centre for exchanging knowledge about gardening, food, and sustainable agriculture. Membership is free, and open to all members of the community. Members can cultivate their own plot and/or assist with the university or food bank plots. No experience necessary, just enthusiasm! Visit www.acadiafarm.org for more information or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
