Just 2 Days to Connecticut Premiere
In what is gearing up as perhaps our most dynamic state premiere to date, the Connecticut Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farmers Association is hosting that state’s premiere of A Chemical Reaction this Sunday, March 7, at 2 p.m.
A fully catered snack table, several educational organizations and door prizes will be just some of the treats at Trinity College’s luxuriant Cinestudio, above. A reception begins a 1 p.m. and a Question-and-Answer Session will follow the film at approximately 3:15.
Among the VIPs expected are: Brett Plymale, the film’s director, Bob Fowler, the executive director of the SafeLawns Foundation, Scott Reil, the event coordinator from HelpfulGardener.com, Nancy Alderman from Environment and Human Health Inc. in Connecticut, Bill Duesing, executive director of CTNOFA.org, and Nancy DuBrule-Clement of Natureworks. Special thanks go out to the Nadeau family from Plantscapes for their sponsorship of the venue, which makes the screening at Cinestudio possible and to Scott Reil, for being the glue that bound the preparations for the event.
The Connecticut media has embraced this screening like few other states. Today at 3 p.m. Eastern time, Peabody Award-winning radio journalist Faith Middleton will be talking about the film with Nancy Alderman, Bill Duesing and yours truly. Tomorrow at noon, Scott Reil and I will be on the air with my old friends Len Giddix and Lisa Napolitano from WTIC 1080. The Hartford Courant gave the film screening a small mention today as well: http://www.courant.com/entertainment/movies/hc-brighton-rock-chemical-reactionmar04,0,1175387.story.
Tickets are by donation, with $10 suggested. Proceeds will be split between the SafeLawns Foundation and CT NOFA.
DVD copies of the film will be available for a $20 donation and I will have copies of my book, The Organic Lawn Care Manual, available for sale.
