Hamilton Food Calender for late April

April 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here are the events for Hamilton for the last two weeks of April. If you hear about any other food enthusiast events, please let me know.

Halton Green Screens presents The Garden
A 2008 American documentary film directed by Scott Hamilton Kennedy. From the ashes of the L.A. riots arose a lush, 14-acre community garden, the largest of its kind in the United States. Now bulldozers threaten its future. If everyone told you nothing more could be done, would you give up?
The Garden has the pulse of verité with the narrative pull of fiction, telling the story of the country’s largest urban farm, backroom deals, land developers, green politics, money, poverty, power, and racial discord. The film explores and exposes the fault lines in American society and raises crucial and challenging questions about liberty, equality, and justice for the poorest and most vulnerable among us.
