TRUCK FARM in Hawai’i

TRUCK FARM rang in the new year with a January 6th screening at Sunset Beach Elementary on Oahu’s North Shore. The screening was presented by the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, local literacy mascot Rex the Surf Dog, and ‘AINA Kine Student Farmer’s Market, as part of a terrific event that included a visit by the Windward Nazarene Academy Truck Farm, kid-friendly gardening activities, tours of the Sunset Beach school garden, and a special performance by Truck Farm songwriter Simon Beins with local musician Jack Johnson. It was a blast! Heartfelt thanks to our hosts for organizing the event.

Harvest party at home/made

Last Sunday, the TRUCK FARM team, with our talented and dear friends Monica Byrne and Leisah Swenson of home/made in Brooklyn, hosted an end-of-summer harvest party to thank our local sponsors and supporters. Monica and Leisah provided delicious food and the perfect place for a festive gathering and outdoor screening. Before the film, Simon Beins performed a few songs that didn’t make it into TRUCK FARM, and a few that did.

Enormous thanks to our talented and generous hosts, Monica and Leisah, to the awesome staff at home/made, and to all of our TRUCK FARM supporters in NYC and beyond.

A visit to Moscow… Idaho!

Last week, the Moscow Food Co-op in northern Idaho hosted a screening of TRUCK FARM and a Q&A with Ian at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, as part of the Good Food Film Series.

Before the sun went down, the Wicked Delicate team visited the beautiful Moscow Community Garden for the Co-op’s Harvest Celebration Picnic, featuring plenty of burgers, brats, and amazing kale salad from the Co-op; friendly local farmers and growers and good-food fans; and live music from singer/songwriter Charlie Sutton.

Huge thanks to host Carol Spurling and the Moscow community for welcoming TRUCK FARM!
