On April 28th, 2016 HMI collaborated with the Albuquerque Academy Desert Oasis Teaching Garden to hold a free screening of Joel Salatin’s inspiring documentary, Polyfaces: A World of Many Choices. A diverse audience of gardeners, students, agricultural producers, educators, parents and Holistic Management practitioners joined us at the Simms Auditorium to enjoy the film.
‘Polyfaces’ is about connecting land and community and working with nature and not against it. The farm produces high quality, nutrient-dense products through the use of regenerative agricultural practices and Holistic Management.
The Salatin’s model of farming is being replicated throughout the world proving that we have the potential to provide quality produce without exhausting our natural resources and negatively affecting our environment.
After the film, HMI Executive Director, Ann Adams, lead a small Q&A session focusing on the importance of the decision-making process and noting that the entire audience of 49 people made a positive step towards a more sustainable and regenerative agricultural system by simply showing up to see the film and getting informed!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this event! We look forward to working more with our local community here in Albuquerque and beyond!
