‘Growing With the Grain’ and ‘Seeds of Hope’ Screenings

Films spotlight initiatives at the Farm Hub

‘Growing With the Grain’ and ‘Seeds of Hope’ Screenings

The Hudson Valley Farm Hub’s initiatives are spotlighted in two short documentaries that will continue screening through the summer.

 

Growing with the Grain, a short documentary film on the small grains research trials, screens as part of Oceans 8 Films `Hope on the Hudson 2’ series. The trials are a collaboration between the Farm Hub and Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County to gather data on a variety of grains and share their findings with area farmers interested in adding grains into their rotations and moving into the local grains market.

Seeds of Hope is a short documentary film that spotlights the collaborative initiative to preserve Native American culture and foodways through seed saving. This initiative is being conducted at the Farm Hub in partnership with the Akwesasne Mohawk Tribe of northern New York and with the support of Seedshed.
