Food & film potluck movie event celebrates the bounty of this area


Fri, Nov 11th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

Come share your creative cookery at 6:30 p.m. Friday, November 18 at the St. Mane Theatre with a "Practice Thanksgiving" potluck, followed at 7:30 by the local premiere of Green Fire, documentary film about Aldo Leopold, forester, ecologist and father of wildlife management, whose visionary attitudes about conservation shape our land stewardship practices today, 60-some years after his death.

Tired of the standard turkey and dressing Thanksgiving fare? "Then Practice Thanksgiving is for you," suggests Lanesboro resident Richard Wolfgramm. A local myth imagined and perpetuated by Wolfgramm, the Practice Thanksgiving is "an occasion to experiment with new recipes, unfamiliar vegetables and dishes thought too daring to try out on your real relatives." Bring an appetizer, beverage, vegetable, salad, or dessert to share with the community. Potluck convenes at 6:30 upstairs in the St. Mane, 206 Parkway Avenue North in Lanesboro. If you're coming from a distance or can't cook, support a local food source. Pick up an item to share from a grocer in Preston, Rushford, Harmony, Chatfield, or Fountain or across the street from the theater at Lanesboro Local Marketplace. Plates, cups ,and eating utensils will be provided.

At 7:30, the party moves downstairs. Have a seat in the historic St. Mane Theatre for the newly-released feature-length documentary, Green Fire. The film honors Aldo Leopold's life and achievements, from beginnings in Burlington, Iowa, in later years as a professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Leopold emphasized biodiversity and ecology and was a founder of the science of wildlife management and United States' wilderness system. The documentary will be followed by a community discussion led by Paul Johnson, former Chief of the Natural Resources Conservation Service and Director of Iowa's Department of Natural Resources, who appears in the film. The movie is free. Donations are appreciated to help cover the cost of showing rights.

The film's title, Green Fire, comes from a passage in A Sand County Almanac, Leopold's beloved book of essays published soon after his death in 1949. The Almanac is considered a landmark in the American conservation movement, with over two million copies in print, translated into nine languages.

"We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then, and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyes-something kno .....
