DIVE! Living Off America's Waste

An illuminating documentary about dumpster divers fighting food waste

Inspired by a curiosity about our country's careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles' supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food - resulting in an inspiring documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerilla journalism and call to action.

Plus an extra special feature: The Eat Trash Campaign: What You Can Do

Regenerative Agriculture
Regenerating the soil, the environment and the community

How we raise our food can be part of the solution to the environmental crisis.

We'll begin by watching a video: Unbroken Ground: Revolutions Start From the Bottom which tells the story of four groups that are pioneers in the fields of regenerative agriculture, regenerative grazing, diversified crop development and restorative fishing. Our discussion will be based on the writings of Kristin Ohlson, author of The Soil Will Save Us-How Scientists, Farmers, and Foodies Are Healing the Soil to Save the Planet.

All are welcome, whether you've done the reading or not.
