Pedal Powered Film Screening Simon Cunich’s documentary Growing Change

The Canberra Environment Centre will screen Simon Cunich’s documentary Growing Change at the ANU Food Coop on Wednesday the 16th of July at 7pm.

Growing Change documents Simon’s investigation into the food crisis of 2012 and his subsequent travels to Venezuela to study the country’s rising food revolution.

Simon and Gardening Australia’s Costa Georgiadis will be there to answer your questions about food security in a Q&A following the film.
