In honor of our Book Club selection, Local Is Our Future, we are showing the award winning documentary that inspired the new book by Helena Norberg-Hodge. All are welcome but we will have copies of the book available for a discounted price of $10. In addition to the main film, we will introduce the latest short videos about Localization, the antidote to economic globalization. Read more about the book in the Learn Section.
Simply News is coming in February and the print and online editions will announce details about the Annual Meeting, new Meetups, and new film events in March, and April.
Fantastic Fungi SOLD OUT last Friday and the positive buzz from our excellent panel led to multiple sold out screenings. The GOOD NEWS is that this amazing documentary is being HELD OVER this week so if you missed it you can still experience it – tickets and showtimes at the Gateway are HERE.
