A Homegrown Documentary

As an urban, Central New York eater, I want to recommend an upcoming film for foodies. All of you who share my geographic and culinary orientation should head out next month to see this film on the ins and outs of growing your own food.

The free event is scheduled for October 3rd at the Westcott Community Center, 826 Euclid Avenue here in Syracuse. Showings will be at 10:30 am and 12:30 pm.


Homegrown (2008), by Robert McFalls, follows the Dervaes family. On their quarter acre in urban Pasadena, Jules, Anais, Justin and Jordanne bring in over 6,000 pounds of produce each season. They make their own bio diesel, power their home with solar power, and run a successful website to boot.

Following both showings, The Alchemical Nursery Project of Syracuse  will host a panel discussion. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions, react to the film, and talk about ongoing activities and projects right here in Central New York. The panel will be hosted by The Alchemical Nursery with representatives from the Syracuse Permaculture and Homesteading Guild, Syracuse Grows, and Habitat/Edible Gardening CNY.

See you there!
