PRESENTED WITH SLOW FOOD EAST END

Join us and Slow Food East End for a a screening of "Deeply Rooted": John Coykendall's Journey to Save our Seeds and Stories.  The film screening will be preceeded by a delicious taste of Camellia Brand red beans and rice prepared by Art of Eating Catering.  Following the film there will be a panel discussion moderated by Kim Folks focused on the importance of maintaining biodiversity.

Panelists include:
Scott Chaskey, Farm Director, Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett
Ira Haspel Proprietor, KK's The Farm in Southold
Jocelyn Ozolins, Head of Reference and the Seed Library, Shelter Island Library
Layton Guenther, Farm Manager, Quail Hill Farms in Amagansett
Sonomi Obinata, heads up Seed Saving, KK's The Farm in Southold

Why is John Coykendall's work important? In the last century, more than 94% of the food crops we once grew have become extinct. Not only are we endangering ourselves as we lose biodiversity, we are also at risk of losing our collective, cultural knowledge of traditional farming methods.

John Coykendall is a renowned heirloom seed saver, a classically trained artist, and Master gardener at Blackberry Farm, one of Americas top resorts in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. For four decades, Coykendall has worked to preserve the heritage - in volumes of journals - of a small farm community in Louisiana, one that represents a dying way of life in most of America. These journals are a love letter to a time when we were all more closely connected to our food and to each other. This work reminds us that the food we eat represents our own living history - an unbroken chain of genetic diversity nourished, cultivated and handed down to us by our ancestors.

Deeply Rooted serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving that legacy and demonstrating ways to do it.
