Downtown Tucson: Fun Food & Film Event – November 20

It’s time for the second annual Taste Film, Talk Food event, brought to you by the Food Conspiracy Co-op and Slow Food Tucson. The evening kicks off at The Screening Room with the Tucson premier of The Greenhorns, a documentary film that explores the lives of America’s young farming community – its spirit, practices, and needs.

Directed by farmer/activist Severine von Tscharner Fleming, The Greenhorns looks at young Americans who are learning to farm at a time when the average age of the American farmer is 57. These greenhorns are working to reverse negative trends in favor of healthy food, local and regional food sheds, and the revitalization of rural economies, one farm at a time.

The Food Conspiracy will also screen a short film about the four young farmers who operate Sleeping Frog Farms in Cascabel, AZ. Adam, Debbie, CJ and Clay will be on hand to introduce the short film and answer questions from the audience.

After the movies, make your way to Borderlands Brewing Co., downtown’s newest brewery. Attendees will be treated to:

•    Conspiracy Beer (brewed by Borderlands and available for purchase exclusively at the Food Conspiracy
•    Conspiracy Coffee (locally roasted by Exo Roasting Co. and also only sold at the Co-op)
•    Warm food prepared by Conspiracy Kitchen with ingredients grown by the Sleeping Frog farmers.

Tickets available at The Food Conspiracy Co-op (412 N. 4th Ave.)
