Film Showing: “The Organic Opportunity”

Support your local community and join the Virginia Tech Sustainable Food Corps for “Wonderful 1st Wednesdays” as they present a free film showing of Chris Bedford’s “The Organic Opportunity”.

This 25 minute film will be followed by a panel to answer your questions concerning sustainable foods and how you can help. The festival, sponsored by the Downtown Merchants of Blacksburg, will be held at the Lyric Theater on Wednesday, May 6th from 5:00pm-6:30pm. Best of all, it’s FREE! : )

Afterwards, walk down to the Blacksburg Farmer’s Market and try out some Dogtown Pizza and get your fill on local produce.

The diverse panel will feature:

  • Susan Clark, Director for the Didactic Program in Dietetics at Virginia Tech
  • Jerry Moles, Grayson Landcare
  • Christy Gabbard from the Conservation Management Institute
  • Elena Dulys-Nusbaum, member of the Environmental Coalition and VT Sustainable Food Corps

Come with questions for the panel and don’t forget to check out the Blacksburg Farmers Market after the film, located on the corner of Roanoke St.and Draper Rd!
