Sustainable: A Documentary on the Local Food Movement

  • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital 262 Danny Thomas Place Memphis, TN, 38105 United States (map)

Join Memphis Tilth for the first installment of our fall film series, hosted by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at the Marlo Thomas Center for Global Education and Collaboration. Through this series we will showcase films highlighting some of the most critical issues affecting our food and farming systems, and share ways in which the work we do and the values we hold at Memphis Tilth support positive change.

The first film in our series is Sustainable, a vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face — soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use — to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.
