Occupy The Farm" tells the story of 200 urban farmers who walk onto a publicly-owned research farm and plant 2 acres of crops in order to save the land from becoming a real-estate development. Empowering food for thought!" - LA Times.

KBOO is host/ Todd Darling, film director will discuss film, and a panel of farmers and beekeepers will discuss with audience ways we can support pollinators and farms. Cosponsored by The Biosafety Alliance, Bee Friendly Portland and The Albina Cooperative Garden.

Biosafety Alliance Director Miguel Robles, Bee Friendly Portland Director Jen Davis and James Ragsdale and Tim Donovan who started the Albina Cooperative Garden will talk about exciting sustainable movements happening in Portland and answer questions.

OCCUPY THE FARM tells the story of a community's fight to save public land for urban farming. When 200 farmers march to the gates of the last farmland in the urban East Bay near Oakland, they don't carry signs protesting University of California's plans to build a shopping center. Instead, they carry tents, tools and 15,000 seedlings.

They clip the padlock off the gate and march onto the fields. What happens next will change the fate of the land and introduce a new strategy for activism. From tilling soil and watering vegetables to police raids, from lawsuits to overflowing harvests, OCCUPY THE FARM reveals a resourceful, creative, and determined community responding with direct action to a serious social need: access to healthy food.
