    ?Modified? is a first-person feature documentary that questions why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world. Shot over a span of ten years, the film follows the ongoing struggle to label GMOs, exposing the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and governments. The film is anchored in the intimate story of the filmmaker?s relationship to her mom, a prolific gardener, seed saver, and food activist who battled cancer while the film production was underway. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film uses family archives, animations, and mouth-watering vignettes from the filmmaker?s award-winning PBS cooking show to create a moving account of family legacy, grassroots activism, and the journey for a more sustainable and transparent food system. Aube Giroux (writer, director, producer) is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, organic gardener, and food blogger. Aube is the creator of ?Kitchen Vignettes?, an online farm-to-table cooking show on PBS which received the 2012 Saveur Magazine Best Food Blog Award and is a two-time James Beard Award nominee. Aube holds an MFA in Film Production from York University. Modified is her first feature-length documentary. There will be a potluck meal at 3:30pm in the lobby of The Gem. The film ?Modified? will show at 4:30pm and be followed by a discussion. Movie tickets for this event are $6 and may be purchased online or at the box office. ... read more

    Spring migration offers a unique time for people interested in birds. With millions flooding into Western Maine, there is an opportunity to locate and identify more new bird species than you will see at any other time of the year. Plus, getting out before leaves have fully budded means many birds are more visible than later in the summer. Join us at Valentine Farm Conservation Center for another in our Birding Series on May 3rd at 7:00. Don?t worry if you haven?t attended other classes. We will review tips and techniques to help you better identify the birds you see. A special focus will be given to the birds which are likely to be seen at this time of year. Many of these are colorful warblers, songsters like those in the thrush family and many others. The goal is to prepare you for a birding walk which we will take at Valentine Farm Saturday May 4th at 8:00 a.m. The morning walk will provide field observations where you will practice the techniques from class. ... read more
