Co-Sponsored by Grassroots Environmental Education and Slow Food Metro North
The eco-doc extravaganza continues at Audubon Greenwich and ends with a festive food inspired Art Reception paired with a duet of farm features! The ‘Audubon At Home’ Nature Film Series features 18 of the most innovative eco-documentaries created in recent years. Organized around three themes: Bird Conservation, Conservation Heroes: Today & Yesterday, and the Sustainable Food Movement, this six-day film bonanza will certainly provide much food for thought. So join us for this unique ‘fund’ and ‘awareness’ raiser that is co-hosted by Audubon Greenwich & Analiese Paik, the founder of The Fairfield Green Food Guide - the source for all-things edible, green, organic and local.
