Free screening of documentary at Dixie

Item by Chris Graham

A free showing of “The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil” is being sponsored by Valley Market in Staunton next week.

The screening is set for Tuesday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m. at the Dixie Theater in Downtown Staunton.

“The Power of Community” tells the story of how Cuba made the transition form a highly mechanized industrial agriculture system to a system emphasizing organic farming and local urban gardens.

Donations offered at the event will benefit Valley Market, a developing grocery cooperative, and the Staunton Performing Arts Center.
