Join us as we screen a very special film about picking

Join us for the first Hopping Afternoon of the year to watch a remarkable film about going picking. Not hop picking this time, but picking after the harvest has taken place, also called gleaning.

“The Gleaners and I” (French: Les glaneurs et la glaneuse) is a 2000 French documentary film by Agnès Varda that features various kinds of gleaning, and will be introduced by Shahana Begum.

We are planning more picking and gleaning trips for 2015 and this film is a great introduction to to the theme.
