La Semilla is hosting a screening of the film Ingredients at The Fountain Theatre in Mesilla on May 19 at 4pm. At the focal point of this film are the farmers and chefs who are creating a truly sustainable food system. Ingredients is a journey that reveals the people behind the movement to bring good food back to the table and health back to our communities.
Tickets are $10, $5 for students. All proceeds benefit La Semilla Food Center and the development of La Semilla Youth Farm. La Semilla Food Center works with youth and families to reestablish the connections between food, health, the environment, and local economies.
La Semilla Youth Farm is situated on 14 acres of farmland in Anthony, NM. On this site La Semilla is developing a demonstration and education site for a three part youth program growing vegetables, preparing healthy meals, and selling the remaining produce at farmer’s market stands and restaurants in the area. At La Semilla Youth Farm, youth will have the opportunity to learn about sustainable agriculture and where their food comes from, try new fruits and vegetables while learning how to prepare healthy meals, and gain important entrepreneurial skills through marketing the produce they grow.

Proceeds benefit La Semilla Food Center!
Join us in the first local screening of The Economics of Happiness, a documentary about the worldwide movement for economic localization.
“Helena Norberg-Hodge delivers a powerful message about globalization: It is the small, local economies around the world that are preserving traditions, cultures, and communities, and ultimately safeguarding our happiness.” – Alice Waters, chef, author, and the proprietor of Chez Panisse
Healthy and sustainable local food systems are one answer to invigorate local economies. A discussion will be held after the film about what we can do in our own communities.
Tickets are $10, $5 for students on August 27, 4pm at the Fountain Theatre in Mesilla. Purchase tickets in advance from Mountain View Market or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
