The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
Join us at for a special screening of a different kind of climate change film. Resilience: Transforming our Community focuses on climate change in the Grey and Bruce region, but applies to all communities. Marine scientist Dr. John Anderson makes this global crisis a personal issue, right in our own backyard, and is designed to inspire action. This uplifting film, directed by Liz Zetlin, offers ways to build resilience in ourselves and our community by transforming the way we live.
"It's so hard to know where to start,” says John. “Change our light bulbs? Drive less? Eat less meat? But the trouble is if we act as individuals, it’s just too little. If we wait for governments to act, it will be too late. But if we work together as a community, it might just be in time.”
Danuta Valleau will moderate a community discussion after the screening. See https://resiliencedoc.info for more info.
This film is hosted by the Owen Sound Field Naturalists.
