“Yert: Your Environmental Road Trip” Screening – Sept. 15th

For 15thousand Farmers will be screening the inspiring documentary “YERT: Your Environmental Road Trip” on September 15th  for their 15th Day Celebration.

Get inspired on Thursday, September 15th at the 15Thousand Farmers 15th Day Celebration at our Growing Center at Dismas’ St. Ann’s campus, 1514 Algonquin Parkway. The celebration will feature a screening of the award winning documentary “YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip)” by Louisvillians Ben Evans and Julie Dingman Evans and their friend Mark Dixon. Ben will be available for questions after the screening. In the film, Ben, Julie and Mark travel throughout the United States seeking good ideas. Along the way, the three friends find innovative people changing the world one step at a time, and naturally, that means 15Thousand Farmers will be on the big screen!

The film’s website says it best, “50 States. 1 Year. Zero Garbage? Called to action by a planet in peril, three friends hit the road – packing hope, humor, and all of their trash – searching for innovators and citizens solving humanity’s greatest environmental crises . Piling on personal challenges as they explore every state in a year (the good, the bad, and the weird), an unexpected turn of events pushes the team to the brink in this award-winning docu-comedy. Featuring Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, Will Allen, Janine Benyus, Joel Salatin, David Orr, and others.”
