Transition Mill Valley celebrates ‘Transition Sunday’  with a series of events in collaboration with the Mill Valley Film Festival’s October 11th  Sequoia Theatre environmental  film screenings:

  • Homegrown, a documentary  on local urban farming in Pasadena, CA
  • Tapped, a hard-hitting expose of bottled H20 and its  significant impact on our economy, environment and health.

Homegrown (1:00 PM – Sequoia Theatre)  sponsored by Whole Foods Market and San Domenico School.

A short accompanying the film:

Hidden Bounty of Marin: Farm Families in Transition
Beyond the image of Marin County’s pretty pastures and rolling grasslands is a revolution in the making. Over 200 small family farms and ranches are pioneering sustainable and organic farming practices that are having a radical impact on the way we eat. From heirloom apples to grass-fed beef, succulent oysters to creamy artisan cheese, this is a timely and mouth-watering overview of a vital local movement. Narrated by Peter Coyote.

Approaching and preparing for Peak Oil

Approaching and preparing for Peak Oil

Exquisitely photographed and featuring discourse from some of the world’s most renowned scientists, Blindspot expertly connects the dots between the energy we use, our economy and their joint effects on the environment — and explains why acting now is critical to create a vibrant future beyond  Peak oil.

“Doubtless Peak Oil will come, the timing is a matter of debate. However we may be better off if it is not too long delayed, because it will accelerate what must be done to prevent environmental catastrophe.”   -Noam Chomsky
