Public welcome at Langley documentaries

Environmental documentaries continue on the second Wednesday of each month through to spring.

The Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) School of Horticulture, in collaboration with the non-profit Green Ideas Network, hosts this sixth season of Green Wednesdays at the Langley campus.

“The films challenge viewers to consider ways we can make our world better for people, places and plants,” said Betty Cunnin, KPU horticulture instructor and faculty support for Green Wednesdays. “Since its beginnings, Green Wednesdays has explored issues pertaining to the ecological impacts of human choice on our lives, and those of generations to come. Past patrons have been inspired to start the Langley Farmer’s Market, initiate food gardens in their children’s schools and work with local councils to reduce water waste. Participants have been encouraged to share and explore ideas with their community on how we can create a more just and sustainable planet for all living species.”

The public is invited to view informative films with KPU horticulture and environmental protection technology students, as well as hear guest speakers. Each screening is followed by discussion.

Each movie begins at 7 p.m. in Room 1030. Admission to each event is by donation and paid parking is in effect.

Registration is recommended due to limited seating.

Most evenings will include free draws for various – and often tasty – door prizes.

The Feb. 12 screening is Edible City and The Sharing Farm (about Richmond). Programmed to be Fat is shown March 12 and the April 9 movie is GMO OMG.

Sign up by contacting Cunin at 604-599-3348 or betty.cunnin@kpu.ca.
