Film to celebrate Organics Week

Byron Council is celebrating National Organics Week 2009 with a free community movie night featuring the film ‘Homegrown’ next Monday night.

The council’s sustainability officer, Graeme Williams, said the film followed the intriguing story of a family in urban California who grow more than 2700 kilos of organic produce on less than a quarter of an acre.

“Homegrown is a good reminder of what is achievable in a relatively small urban space and how we can become inspired to make our own changes,” he said.

“The family featured in the film not only live entirely off the grid, they even make their own bio-diesel. The film is an intimate portrait of how we can live a sustainable life in the 21st Century.”
 
Mr Williams said there are more than 40 certified organic farmers in the Byron Shire that produced a range of food, fibre and other products using sustainable agricultural practices.

The film will screen from 7pm on Monday in the council’s chambers in Mullumbimby.
