Find the future of farming

A documentary showcasing the extraordinary changes taking place in America’s food system will be screened at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, at the Haywood County Public Library in Waynesville.

“Farmers for America: A Documentary to Celebrate, Inspire and Support Young Farmers,” features 21 farmers to reveal the next generation ready to take over an industry where the average age is 60, looking at the practices they’re championing and the obstacles they must overcome.

A discussion about the film and the future of agriculture in Western North Carolina will be held after the 75-minute showing. Free, with refreshments provided by Friends of the Library. Sponsored by the N.C. Grows initiative of WNC Farm Link & Stanberry Insurance.

In addition to firearm safety, instruction includes ethics and responsibility, conservation and wildlife management, identification, survival, first aid, specialty hunting and tree stand safety.
