FRESH

  • Unitarian Universalist Church

Please join us on March 2 for our next Slow Film: FRESH, which we are showing in celebration of National CSA Signup Day and the farmers who are re-inventing our food system. 

FRESH portrays a movement that is happening in America and worldwide. The alternative food market is the fastest growing market in the United States, even though it still makes up a minuscule percentage of the food economy. And it’s incredibly energetic. FRESH focuses on sustainable agriculture and depicts farmers, activists and entrepreneurs who are searching for efficient ways to produce healthy fresh organic food.

Prior to the film, Slow Food will host a CSA Fair with local farms who will be sharing information on their CSA Programs. Visit with Stoney Acres farmRed Door Family FarmLonely Oak FarmWhitefeather Organics and ask any questions you might have about sourcing local seasonal products directly from them, which also greatly supports their business!

A potluck dinner will start at 6:30 PM and everyone is invited to bring a dish to share. BYOB, wine and beer allowed.

Cost for the evening is a $5 donation to cover the screening license fee
and free for children and students

Slow Film Movie Night--To Make a Farm

Slow Food Marathon County will be showing the charming documentary "To Make a Farm" on Tuesday evening, January 26. Join us as we watch these aspirational young farmers develop their CSA's and face seasonal challenges, reminiscent of the dedicated small scale farmers we have here in Central Wisconsin! We hope you can carve out some time to see this delightful film with us!

Named one of the ten most popular Canadian films at the Vancouver International Film Festival, To Make A Farm asks: what might the future of local food and farming look like? This beautifully photographed documentary explores the lives of five young people who have decided to become small-scale farmers. VIFF calls To Make A Farm “exceptionally hopeful, giving us a close-range view of humanity along with a detailed portrayal of the nuts and bolts of agriculture.”

Location: Universalist Unitarian Church, 504 Grant Street, Wausau

SFMC will provide a hearty winter soup, bread and salad. Please provide your own beverages and anything you'd like to share. Cost is $5 (free for children and students). RSVPs are required. Please email slowfoodwausau@yahoo  to reserve your spot!

Following the film, several of our local farmers will talk about their own experiences in getting started here in central Wisconsin.
