On Friday, February 23rd the Foundation for Sustainable Forests, in partnership with the French Creek Valley Conservancy and Allegheny College, hosted a screening of the new Wendell Berry documentary film “Look & See, A Portrait of Wendell Berry”.   The film, which is largely agricultural in focus, has much to say about the having of a land ethic, and the concept of sustainable working lands- hugely relevant topics for our region.   A robust crowd of almost 100 people showed up for the viewing, and stayed afterwards to discuss the film over refreshments.    Many thanks to those who came out!

A nice write-up of the evening and the film appeared in Allegheny College’s The Campus, and can be viewed here:
