Overview Out to Pasture & BFED: Baltimore Food Ecology

Sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future

Ever think about the origins of the meat you eat? Ponder how drastically farming has changed over the past few decades? The answers are surprisingly drastic. On March 15 the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) will screen two short films that investigate the matter. BFED: Baltimore Food Ecology Documentary is an in-depth look at how food arrives on Baltimoreans’ plates, and why the food system comes up short for many city residents. Out to Pasture: The Future of Farming? profiles small-scale farmers trying to raise meat, milk and eggs in ways that are both ecologically and economically sustainable.

Preceding the screening the CLF is unveiling an online curriculum about the food system that aims to move students from being merely food consumers to being food citizens. Educators should email rsvp.feedyourhead@gmail.com to RSVP or for details.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker Leo Horrigan, Maryland Institute College of Art faculty member Hugh Pocock, farmers Steve Belkoff and Dru Peters, a representative from Future Harvest/Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, President of Future Harvest/CASA Jakir Manela and Baltimore City’s first Food Policy Director, Holly Freishtat.

Food reception sponsored by Clementine!
