Every 30 minutes a farmer in India kills himself because he can no longer provide for his family. This documentary takes us to a village at the center of this crisis to explore how biotechnology is changing the way farming is done and driving small-scale farmers off the land.
Green Tuesdays & Thursdays events offer opportunities for lively discussion and community engagement around sustainability topics. Events are free and open to the public. Free popcorn at Fitchburg's Green Thursdays.
Green Tuesdays & Thursdays are brought to you by The Natural Step Monona in collaboration with many community partners in Dane County, including Fitchburg Library Green Thursdays. The program is supported by "Gold-Green Sponsors" Willy Street Co-op and Madison Gas & Electric, and "Silver-Green Sponsor" Dane County Environmental Council, with ongoing support from Richard and Judy Fritz.
