Grow Your Own

Due to popular demand our next event will be a screening of the British film Grow Your Own (PG), organised in collaboration with Teignmouth Film Society. Following some refugees given an allotment on which to grow vegetables, this manages to be a genuinely funny and moving film made from the unlikely subjects of gardening, immigration and telephone masts.

After the film we will encourage informal discussion exploring local opportunities for gardening and growing some of our own food supplies. Anyone interested in knowing more about sustainability and the Transition movement is welcome to attend.

The film will be screened in the Carlton Theatre, Teignmouth on Tuesday 27th April; doors open from 7 for 7.30 pm. Entry is free; donations welcome. Bar and refreshments available. Local allotment groups will arrange displays in the foyer. There will also be a raffle for a ‘4-Tier Growhouse’ kindly donated by Jack’s Patch.

If you’d like to print out a copy of the film poster to display, a copy is available here.
