Bike to Movie Night

By Dani Poirier, Environmental & Sustainability Studies Student

What better way to start a fresh fall semester than an outdoor movie screening on Tuesday, August 30th? Round up your friends and ride your bike, walk, or bus to the Edible Campus Gardens located just east of Pioneer Memorial Theatre (300 South 1400 East) for our biannual Bike to Movie Night. We are thrilled to be showing Patagonia Provision’s new documentary: Unbroken Ground. This film by Chris Malloy “explores four areas of agriculture that aim to change our relationship to the land and oceans.” Join us for mingling at sunset at 7:45PM and enjoy tasty organic refreshments. Then get comfy in your concert chairs and picnic blankets for the film starting at 8:30PM!

So what is this movie about? Patagonia Provisions describes:

“[Unbroken Grounds] explains the critical role food will play in the next frontier of our efforts to solve the environmental crisis… Most of our food is produced using methods that reduce biodiversity, decimate soil and contribute to climate change. We believe our food can and should be a part of the solution to the environmental crisis; grown, harvested and produced in ways that restore our land, water and wildlife. The film tells the story of four groups that are pioneers in the fields of regenerative agriculture, regenerative grazing, diversified crop development and restorative fishing.”.

We can’t wait to see you there to help us kick off an awesome semester! Invite your friends on Facebook and spread the word about this great event. Lastly, get involved and get connected to our food system here on campus by volunteering at the Edible Campus Gardens.

This event is hosted by the Sustainability Leadership Committee and co-sponsored by the Edible Campus Gardens, Environmental and Sustainability Studies Program, and Sustainability Office.

Dani Poirier is a student in Environmental & Sustainability Studies, as well as Strategic Communications.
