How close can you get to your food? Come and spend a summer evening on a local organic farm diving into a delicious piece of site sound and taste specific theatre. Follow puppets, musicians and circus acts through planted fields and fruit orchards, past streams and into a forest grove as Georgia, an organic farmer, and her scientist daughter Freidi struggle to save their family farm from an over the fence GMO attack and find love in unexpected places. The evening finishes with guests, farmers and actors sitting down to an open air organic meal grown on the very land they've just explored.
Ensemble includes; Sandy Buck (Puppet Creator), Jan Derbyshire (Director), Chloe Doucet-Winkelman, Jeff Gladstone (Musical Director), Thomas Jones, Sarah May Redmond and Tallulah Winkelman (Playwright).
Tickets, $65, limited seating
Earlybird rate before August 2nd, $50
In my fifth season in 2011, I work with a talented and dedicated team of farmers to grow food on 12 acres of land. Our farm is owned co-operatively and our business is run as a separate entity, leasing land from the co-op.
Given the interest in understanding local, sustainable agriculture, I hope this blog offers some insight into the world of agriculture. You can contact me at glenvalleychris (at) gmail (dot) com.
