FOLLOWED BY A MOVIE: “Sourlands: Stories From the Fight for Sustainability”
Description: Between New York City and Philadelphia, there is a forest that has survived the bulldozers of development. The locals call this place the “The Sourlands”. It is from this stronghold of green that local award-winning journalist Jared Flesher weaves a tale of ecology, energy and agriculture. A rampaging deer herd, invasive plants and wholesale habitat destruction threaten the local ecosystem. Farmers in the surrounding valley battle against high land prices, high property taxes, and increasingly erratic weather patterns. A group of local engineers searches for new ways to save energy and stop global warming. Pay close attention, and the challenges facing this community look a lot like the challenges facing ecosystems, farmers and energy visionaries everywhere.
To help support the continued work of Director Jared Flesher, a $5 donation is requested but not mandatory. www.sourlands.com 2012 - 78 min
