The Last Crop tells a personal tale of a family caught in the middle of a delicate interplay between urban and agricultural space in California’s Central Valley. Annie and Jeff Main own a 20-acre organic farm that serves the Sacramento/San Francisco communities. After 30 years of farming, they are finding it harder to remain viable in a rapidly changing highly competitive environment.

The evening will consist of a 20 minute screening of the film followed by a panel discussion. The panel will discuss some of the current issues of being viable and sustainable as a small scale farmer.
