The public is invited to Sebasticook Regional Land Trust’s Local Foods Feast and Film event on Saturday, November 1st at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts, located at 42 Depot Street, Unity.
The fourth annual Local Foods Feast features locally grown and produced goods from Central Maine farms and producers. The evening will begin with an assortment of local cheeses at 5:30 PM, with dinner to be served at 6 PM. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will be available. During the meal the Trust will celebrate its 10th anniversary and offer a sneak peak at plans for its second ten years conserving Central Maine’s wild and working landscape. The gathering serves as the Trust’s annual membership meeting and is sponsored by Johnny’s Selected Seeds, Unity College and Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm.
After the benefit dinner, there will be a screening of the new film DamNation beginning at 7:30 PM. The film highlights other dam removal stories in Maine, Washington and Oregon. DamNation is a powerful film odyssey across America that explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that the future is bound to the life and health of the rivers.
Proceeds will benefit Sebasticook Regional Land Trust’s work to recognize and conserve Central Maine’s rich wild and working landscape through conservation, habitat restoration and education. The Trust has forever conserved more than 3500 acres of productive farmland, working woodlands and public recreation lands available for hunting, fishing and exploring nature with friends and family.
Tickets cost $25 for the full evening and must be purchased in advance by contacting Jennifer at 948-3766 or jennifer@SebasticookRLT.org.
