Farmers for America Movie May 24 at Hendersonville Coop

— Written By

Henderson County Cooperative Extension is partnering with the Organic Growers School to bring the film Farmers for America: One American Story to the Hendersonville Coop. The movie will be shown at 6:30 pm on May 24. There is no admission charge, but the seating is limited to the first 40 people.

Farmers for America is a film about the American farmer, their challenges and the future of American farming. The maker of the film stated, “I want people to understand how less than 2% of this country’s population feed 300 million Americans three times a day. I want people to see the challenges our farmers are dealing with, and the reasons why agriculture is facing a looming skills gap unlike anything we’ve ever seen. I want people to get a sense of just how close we are to becoming completely disconnected from our food, and the people who grow it.”

The Hendersonville Coop is located at 60 South Charleston Lane, Hendersonville, NC 28792
