kombit-posterJoin us at a public forum for local conversation and awareness-building about small farmers, sustainable agriculture, and reforestation efforts. It’s also a fascinating look at corporate social responsibility and “green business” efforts: the film features the organization Timberland’s pledge to work with Haitian farmers to plant 5 million trees in Haiti over 5 years — and the challenges and successes they experience along the way. We’ll view the documentary, and then share responses and ideas in participative conversations. A collection that day will be split with the Haiti Partnership that has been an important connection of Brooklyn Ethical Culture. Part of a summer of programs connected with racial justice, this week intersecting with sustainability and climate change.
