Film series focuses on regenerative agriculture

The 2019 North Olympic Peninsula Farming Film Festival will present “Healing the Soil” on Monday.

The free film will be shown at the Port Townsend Public Library, 1220 Lawrence St., at 1 p.m.

Another screening will take place in the Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave., Port Hadlock at 6 p.m.

The documentary explores how the Regenerations International Botanical Garden in Kilauea, Hawaii, used the jadam Korean natural farming method.

The festival, which began last Monday, is featuring six films on regenerative farming.

Organizers say regenerative farming is part of the climate change solution and global earth repair.

Local efforts will be highlighted in discussion after each film.

Films are shown at 1 p.m. at the Port Townsend Public Library, 1220 Lawrence St., and 6 p.m. at the Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave., in Port Hadlock.

The remaining schedule includes “Living the Change” on Jan. 28, a double feature with “Oyster Farming: Restoration of the Olympia Oyster” and “Community Shellfish Farming and Water Quality Restoration” on Feb. 4, “Green Gold” on Feb. 11 and “Farming & Earth Repair Shorts” on Feb. 25.

The free film screenings are sponsored by Jefferson County Library, Port Townsend Public Library, Friends of the Trees Society and Jefferson County Local Food Systems Council.
