FencerowsSunday, August 2nd, at 4:30 PM, the documentary “From Fencerows to Foodsheds” will be shown at the Gibson Theatre, followed by a picnic on the town square, catered by Adam Israel of Izzy’s Catering.

This is a special documentary featuring several Batesville area farmers and local food advocates talking about where our food comes from and how we are working to rebuild our local food system and why it is so important. Batesville, IN and Elkhart County, IN were chosen to work with Purdue Extension’s Local foods project in 2014, and Janet Katz, working on her thesis, chose to profile those farmers and food advocates in her project.

If you are interested in supporting local food, promoting local food, and buying local food, see this movie. If you are not convinced how important local food is, this movie will certainly open your eyes.

Tickets are $15.00 donation in advance, $20.00 at the door. Tickets are available at the Batesville Farmers Market, Batesville Chamber of Commerce, Michaela Farm, Alpine Berry Farm and by calling Bonnie Robbins at 812-716-0390. Donation includes the documentary, picnic, and raffle.
