  • The Family Farm - Movie Night 1 rsvp

    Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 06:30 PM
    McHenry County College - Luecht Center in Crystal Lake, IL

    We're partnering with The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County to present this free screening of The Family Farm. The film explores the “farm to table” process, highlights the systematic barriers that small farmers face in running profitable farms, and shares the breakthroughs that have allowed many farmers to achieve success. The film is sure to spark conversation about how our co-op can be part of the solution for farmers in our region.

    Please note: doors will open at 6:30, so you can come early and grab a seat.
