"Exceptionally Hopeful" Documentary
TO MAKE A FARM showing in Wolfville.
Katimavik Wolfville is pleased to present a fundraising event for the Acadia
To Make A Farm, a feature-length documentary film exploring local food and
farming, will show in Wolfville March 29th. A discussion will follow with
members of the local farming community.
To Make A Farm, named one of the ten most popular Canadian films at the
Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) in 2011, depicts the struggles
and triumphs of a season on a fledgling farm through the eyes of five young
people who have decided to become small-scale farmers, despite having no
backgrounds in this demanding profession.

The Acadia Community Farm (ACF) began with the vision of providing local,
organic produce to the University dining hall, while also serving as a
community garden. Entering our fourth season, the ACF has evolved into a
community centre for exchanging knowledge about gardening, food, and
sustainable agriculture. Membership is free, and open to all members of the
community. Members can cultivate their own plot and/or assist with the
university or food bank plots. No experience necessary, just enthusiasm!
