Green Film Series Feb 16 – “Just Eat It”

Posted on

This month’s showing for the 2017 Green Film Series is “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story,” to be shown on Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 7:00 PM in the Michigan Tech Forestry Building’s Hesterberg Hall. Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste at the farm, at the grocery store, and all the way to the back of their own fridge.

After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. The film gives ‘dumpster diving’ new meaning!

Daryl Matthews, Associate Director of Dining Services at Michigan Tech, will lead a discussion following the 74-minute film.  Light refreshments will be provided by the Keweenaw Co-op.  The film is free and open to the public, though donations are appreciated.

The 2017 Green Film Series is co-sponsored by Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative, Michigan Tech Great Lakes Research Center, Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and Keweenaw Land Trust.  A full list of this year’s film selections can be found online at www.KeweenawLandTrust.org.

    December 16, 2017

    Swedetown -The Husky is off the leash and running free. All trails tilled and tracked, beautiful conditions. Multi loops rolled.

    Churning Rapids Snow Bike Trail – All trails groomed Friday night. Basswood loops were groomed for the first time this season and are soft. A few inches of fluffy snow fell after grooming, but trails should be rideable with low tire pressure.

    Maasto Hiihto/Churning Rapids -This morning we rolled the snow that fell overnight and decided some trails were now deep enough to make tracks. Granted, things are quite rough and wet spots remain, nonetheless, tracks were made on all city side trails and the gorge until Tomasi pit road. From there the old trail or trail 8 to Churning Rapids has tracks; trail 4 towards Mud Lake, and the trail on the east side of the lake (trail 9). Trails aren’t perfect yet but skiing isn’t bad.
