Fred Spicer, Executive Director of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, joined Mike Dubberly today with a look at how the Year of Alabama Food mixes with films and the gardens.
As the state's most visited free attraction, Birmingham Botanical Gardens is eager to take part, presenting a new summer documentary series all about food: the good, the bad and the ugly. The Documentary Film Series will begin on June 24 with "The Weight of the Nation" and continue on six Sundays over the following eight weeks, concluding with "Dirt!" on August 19.
Admission to the educational films is free, with each beginning at 2 p.m. in the Linn-Henley Lecture Hall. No registration is required.
After some films, experts will host a community discussion about their content. For a complete list of dates and films, visit bbgardens.org/filmseries.
