Clean Eats’ mission is to support good, clean, and fair food within the Charleston community by joining hands to rediscover the importance of honoring our food from the farm to the table and appreciating the fruits of our labor by: cooking together, gardening, enjoying feasts, attending film festivals and taste workshops, listening to guest speakers, embarking on farm tours, as well as planning events for our student community!
Clean Eats is hosting two films that are free to CofC students with a valid student ID.
Bees: Tales From The Hive will be shown on Wednesday, April 11th at 5:00 p.m. in the Stern Center, room 409. Explore the inner workings of a beehive in this fascinating episode of the popular public television series “Nova,” which explains how and why these hardworking insects manufacture honey and the lengths they’ll go to protect it. Fascinating close-up footage captures some of the most important moments in a bee’s life cycle, including a fight to the death between two rival queens and a drone mating with a queen while flying at top speed.
The Garden Summer will be shown on Monday, April 16th at 7:00 p.m. in the Sottile Theater . This is a documentary about a summer garden and social capital. In the summer of 2010, Hailey Wist invited four suburbanites to a rural ranch in rural Arkansas. They lived in a small cabin, grew a large garden, ate only from a 100-mile radius, sold at a local farmers market, and hosted a field feast. The project was a grassroots, community-based, social experiment.
