First Friday Potluck: Feast and Film

 Feast and Film: A Wild Game and Local Foods Potluck and Film Showing
 Friday, December 3rd, 6 pm
Join the Martha Wagbo Farm and Education Center for our second annual Wild Game and Local Foods Potluck.  Dinner starts at 6 pm. Bring your favorite wild game, wild food, or local food dish to share. It's not required though, so feel free to join us with a dish or without.  The film starts at 7:15 with The Great Dance: A Hunters Story. This rare film is a glimpse into the beautiful and spiritual life of the nomadic hunters of the Kalahari desert: the San Bushmen. A visual feast, this film explores the importance of animals, the depth and meaning of tracking, and the relationship between the hunter and the hunted. To the Bushman hunter, animals are to be revered and the hunt itself is sacred: “Tracking is like dancing. You are talking with God when you are doing these things.” 90 minutes. Rated PG.  FREE and open to the public.
