Northfield Film Screening & Panel: Stewards of the Land / Serán las dueñas de la tierra

Join us for a screening of “Stewards of the Land/Seràn las dueñas de la tierra” followed by a conversation with the film’s producer, a panel discussion about cooperative farming and land access in Minnesota, and a shared meal on Saturday, June 3, from 3 p.m.-7 p.m., at the Northfield Community Education Center.
Stewards of the Land / Serán las dueñas de la tierra is a feature documentary about Stephanie, Ian, and Alfredo, three young landless ecological farmers in Puerto Rico striving to produce healthy food for local consumption. In this economically depressed US-territory, producing food locally is urgent. The story follows the protagonists as they struggle to get their leased land production-ready before and after powerful hurricanes devastate the archipelago. The documentary shows the protagonists’ grit as they attempt to carve a living without land ownership or capital.
This film screening is presented in partnership with Land Stewardship Project and Commons Land. Come hear from emerging farmers and local organizers about their struggles and successes in creating sustainable, regenerative food systems.

There is also an additional screening of the film in Minneapolis on June 4th (, co-sponsored by COPAL MN.
