A panel discussion will immediately follow and feature Rep. Eddie Rodriguez, founder and chair of the Farm-to-Table Caucus; Robert Kiplin Pastor, director of In Organic We Trust; Urban Roots Executive Director Max Elliott; and an Urban Roots Youth Intern. The panel will be moderated by Kate Vickery, Urban Agriculture Planner with the city of Austin’s Sustainable Urban Agriculture & Community Garden Program. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Wed., Aug. 14, at 7pm. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Village, 2700 W. Anderson Ln. 512/476-1320.
