“Growing Legacy” or Ag Reserve- the Movie: Seeking Sponsorships

Filed Under Take Action Now! · Tagged:  

We have talked with various folks from farmers, to government types, to consumers and visionaries in order to paint a picture of this special and important place. With 40-some hours of footage covering all 4 seasons and interviews with Reserve stakeholders- now begins post- production.  The movie will be a powerful educational tool- seen in schools, film festivals and of course online.

We are happy to have the support of Heritage Montgomery and will be showing the finished product at Heritage Days, June 2014.

Check out a snippet of the interview we did with Button Farm Living History Center’s Tony Cohen and some of the background footage we have ( low resolution)

A new movie about Bee Colony Collapse (Video)

Filed Under News · Tagged:  

What keeps the wheels of agriculture buzzing? The answer is  bees. Scientists have been documenting huge die-offs in bee population, thought to be the result of an over-reliance on chemical pesticides. The critically acclaimed new movie, “Queen of the Sun” is a meditation on  this Colony Collapse, and  efforts to help bees bounce back.  MCA is hoping to host a screening of this movie, in the mean time, here is the trailer. Have thoughts on the trailer, join the conversation on our facebook page.

A farm in Silver Spring (really!) makes SilverDocs

When Carlie Koiner was growing up, MoCo was all farms. Charlie is now 83 and the 1 acre plot he farms behind his house in downtown Silver Spring is the only MoCo  farm below the beltway. This tenacious farmer has caught the attention of local documentary film makers and his story ‘Corner Plot’ will be featured next week at SilverDocs, the documentary film fest hosted by the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring.  See the Gazette article for info on all  three showtimes.  We highly recommend the trailer.
