Can we farm forever?
That is the question producers of the documentary film “The Perpetual Farm” set out to discuss.
Gorge Grown Food Network will launch its Winter Film Series Jan. 23 with a screening of the film at North Shore Café, 166 E. Jewett Blvd in downtown White Salmon. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the documentary will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Tova Tillinghast, district manager of the Underwood Conservation District and one of the producers of the film, will be present to answer questions after the screening of the movie. The DVD of the film also includes a printable teacher’s guide aligned with the Common Core State Standards for grades nine through 12.
