HOMEGROWN screening in Belmont - Oct 5

Attention Locavores and Film Fans!

On Monday, October 5th at 7:00 PM Belmont World Film will present an evening of films about sustainable food at the Studio Cinema in Belmont (376 Trapelo Road). The evening’s headline film, HOMEGROWN, features the Dervaes family, who turned their 1/5 of an acre yard (front and back) in urban Pasadena, CA into a farm producing 6000 pounds of produce a year. Family patriarch Jules Dervaes will speak after the film via satellite. The evening’s other films include HOT BREAD KITCHEN and VIVE LA FOOD.

You may have seen the Dervaes family on Oprah, CBS News, and elsewhere demonstrating their innovative and uncompromising homesteading methods. They even make their own biodiesel, grind their own flour using pedal power, and produce 80% of what they eat.
The evening is part of “One Book One Belmont,” a town-wide reading program. This year the town is reading ANIMAL, VEGETABLE, MIRACLE by Barbara Kingsolver, which describes her family’s adventures eating locally-produced food for one year, relying in part on food they grew or raised on their farm in southern Appalachia.
Tickets are $10 ($8 for students and seniors). For more information about the films and ticketing visit or call 617-484-3980.
