Tuesday, March 21, 2017 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Join Pennypack Farm and Education Center at the Ambler Theater for a screening of "Sustainable," a vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for a Sponsor Expo in the lobby; the film rolls at 7:30.
