Seacoast Permaculture presents a screening of “The Bullish Farmer” at The Waysmeet Center in Durham.
The Bullish Farmer (2017, 79 minutes): Over a decade ago, John Ubaldo, a successful Wall Street banker, decided to call it quits. He traded in his high finance career for 185 acres of land to live a quiet life as a small farmer. John wanted to farm the way it was done 100 years ago, raising a variety of livestock and crops. His only goal was to raise delicious and nutritious food.
But John’s dream of living a traditional agrarian life gets complicated when he comes up against Big Agriculture and realizes that his methods are not in sync with today’s prevailing agricultural trends. John, the very private farmer, becomes a passionate and outspoken activist lobbying for GMO labeling, animal rights, the preservation of crop diversity and the reduction of chemical fertilizers to help preserve small farms and rural America.
Free and open to the public. Film followed by a potluck dinner.
Seacoast Permaculture’s Film & Food nights are a chance to come together for both learning and getting to know each other better. We ask that you come with an open mind and heart to new information and new friends.
