Transition Athelney presents Demain (Tomorrow—the film is in English but the film-makers are French), a hugely positive film exploring local, community-led solutions to the challenges that face us.
The nourishment of our bodies, minds and hearts comes from our own communities. The film gives examples of this from around the world. Closer to home, it looks at Totnes, the birthplace of the Transition movement, Incredible Edible Todmorden in Yorkshire and the Bristol Pound. A trailer is available here. Before the film there will be a
Mini-Fair of Local Produce
This will celebrate our rich assortment of local food and drink suppliers, including
• Dyke Farm (untreated organic milk)
• Fruits of Athelney (apple juice)
• Granny Gothards (home-made ice cream and sorbets)
• Simon Jones (Somerset Honey)
• Lyng Court (organic lamb)
• Pitney Farm Shop & Café
• Withies Delicatessen (based at the Willow and Wetlands Visitor Centre)
The Lemon Tree Café will be providing tea and biscuits.
Entry is free, but Transition Athelney would very much appreciate donations to cover the hire of the film and the hall, and please also bring along some cash in case you’d like to buy some produce.
Thursday 26 October at the Williams Hall, Stoke St Gregory.
Doors open 7pm, film starts 7:30pm.
