I was so impressed with this movie!! Thank you Monique & Luscher Farm for hosting us all last week for a preview. It was a powerful story about a group of kids here in Portland that are taken away from their computers and cell phones for a trip into the wilderness. It also includes insightful commentary from a wide variety of international experts. They make a compelling case that the increasing amount of time kids are spending in front of screens has negative impacts on their own brain development and for society as a whole. The movie was produced here in Oregon by Meg Merrill and the next showing is at Lewis & Clark on June 11th.
Watching the movie renewed my commitment to getting kids out onto the farm! Here is a list of classes & activities happening at Zenger Farm & Luscher Farm this summer. You can also bring your kids to our CSA volunteer days & work parties. More info here.
