The Algoma United Methodist Church will be hosting a screening of the short film “Searching for Sustainability” beginning at 7 p.m. Monday as part of The Kewaunee County Dialogue Series.
The film, produced by NWTC instructor of sustainable agriculture Valerie Dantoin, features several local farmers of all size and types and area conservationists discussing the importance of using more sustainable practices. They demonstrate how they are working to lessen the environmental impact farming has on our air and water.
The Algoma church is proud to partner with the nonpartisan Dialogue Series to bring this important film to area residents, said lay leader Jodi Parins.
“Offering educational opportunities on the issue of natural resource protection is part of our church’s new mission,” Parins said. “We felt that how this film addresses the issue without vilifying anyone or politicizing the issue was a perfect fit for our outreach efforts.”
Mary Ellen Dobbins, coordinator of the Series, added, “Conservation of our natural resources is something we all should be advocating for. Whether you live in the city or on the farm, we all need water and we all need food and this film does a great job explaining the strengths, weaknesses and threats in our current food system”
Algoma United Methodist Church is located at 804 Parker Ave., Algoma.
