Proceeds from the event will be used to offset costs of distributing and marketing the film at festivals and screenings across the country and in Europe. The cost is $50 per person. Seating is limited to 100. Tickets are available through Georgia Organics by clicking here and must be purchased no later than Tuesday, April 4th.The Gardens at Kennesaw Mountain 1127 White Circle NW Marietta, GA

"The most serious gardening I do would seem very strange to an onlooker, for it involves hours of walking round in circles,
apparently doing nothing. What I'm doing is forcing myself to evaluate certain areas....
Only during these quiet moments does a good idea suddenly occur."
~ Helen Dillon, Irish garden writer
