Environmental Film Series

Healthy Food Environment: Short Video Presentations about GMO Issues

Since 2009, our Environmental Film Series has covered topics related to climate change, renewable energy, sustainable living, nutrition, and healthy, organically grown food.

In this episode, we selected several short presentations related to GMO issues.  After the videos, we will discuss Colorado Proposition 105 which will be presented to voters on the November 2014 ballot.

At 3:00 we will take a break and continue at 3:10 with a presentation about the Woodland Aquatic Project by Steve Jeroslow.

We look forward to an informative session with the excellent audience participation typical of Harvest Center events.

Join us at the Woodland Park Library 1:30-3:30pm October 12 in the large meeting room on the lower level. Free admission.

Harvest Center Celebrates Local Food

Join us at the Woodland Park Library as we continue our celebration of high altitude locally grown food.  We will begin with presentations by Micaela Enger and Anne Akers-Lewis about their Ogallala Commons Community Internships this Summer at the Woodland Park Farmers Market.

Following their presentations, we will share a potluck of snacks based on Colorado grown fruit and vegetables.  This time of year there should be plenty of options.  On the other hand, do not stay at home just because you aren’t able to bring a snack to share.

We will also offer door prizes and, of course, the fellowship will be fulfilling as usual.
