DC Greenhorns Screening: Photos

The Greenhorns is "a small grass-roots organization, based on a farm in the Hudson Valley of New York" with a mission "to recruit, promote and support young farmers across America." Naturally I'm a big fan, so I was really excited to learn that the group was organizing an event in Washington D.C. Originally, the event included an urban farms bike tour in addition to a screening of Severine von Tscharner Fleming's film The Greenhorns. The bike tour was canceled due to heavy rain storms, to be rescheduled for a later date (stay tuned!). But the screening still ran at Latelier Theater in Georgetown. The event included an impressive assortment of food, made with local ingredients, accompanied by a live performance from D.C.'s Second String Band. Curious to see the film? Request a screening in your area! You can also follow news and events at The Greenhorn blog.

Let's Do Lunch! Photo Book

Back in January 2010, Photoinduced sponsored the Lets Do Lunch! Photo Contest, calling for photos that document meals. 20% of all entry fees went to local food banks. Such an excellent idea for a photo contest! The judges were Lou Manna, The chow.com editorial staff and James B. Wood. The grand prize went to Katya Evdokimova for her comical image of a woman in a panda costume, advertising a Chinese buffet.

The book is officially out, available in two sizes: 7x7 and 12x12! Like the entry fees for the contest, 20% of book sales go to food banks. Check out the book preview here. My Still Life #10 is featured in the book as an Honorable Mention!

Softcover: US $35.24
Hardcover, Dust Jacket: US $51.34
Hardcover, ImageWrap: US $55.94

PRICING: 12x12
Hardcover, Dust Jacket: US $118.95
Hardcover, ImageWrap: US $123.95

Photoinduced will be hosting the contest again, so stay tuned for the next call for entries and start documenting your food!
