The Melrose UU Church Green Sanctuary Committee and Sustainable Melrose are hosting an evening of music, activities, fun and film on June 20 on the lawn of the Melrose Public Library starting at 6 p.m.
The evening will kick off with Grammy Award Nominee Children’s Musician Alastair Moock at 6:30 p.m. Following the music, there will be a planting activity where children will plant seedlings to grow their own food at home and the night will conclude with a showing of the film Truck Farm at dusk.
Truck Farm tells the story of a group of quirky urban farmers building a farm in the back of a pickup truck in Brooklyn, NY and using it to educate urban children by engaging them in farming, healthy eating and growing their own food. Truck Farm is a simple concept, with a big impact.
Bring your own lawn chair or blanket along with a picnic and enjoy the evening!
