The evening's program centers around the screening of a short documentary f'rim titled "Elevate Tahoe: Food Innovations at 6,000 Feet." The grim, produced in collaboration between Moonshine Ink, SBS Media House and the Tahoe Truckee Foundation, showcases how individuals and organizations in our neighboring Tahoe region address access to fresh food and the gardening challenges that come with life at our higher elevation climates. For them it is 6,000 feet. Plumas communities are a bit lower but face the same challenges of short growing seasons and limited access to fresh food caused both by distance and high prices. The program offers more. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with a street fair of sorts with tables gilled with information, plant starts and the friendly faces of folks that are working to produce and supply our community with healthy food. There will also be Gary Romano talks about challenges surrounding high- elevation growing in the film "Elevate Tahoe: Food Innovations at 6,000 feet."

DINNER IN THE AUSTRIAN ALPS The alpine air was absolutely still; The lake was like a mirrored plate of glass; The only sound was from a distant trill Beyond the gasthaus trees and tailored grass. Alone, we sat upon the dining deck And clasped our hands without a word or sound Then watched the sun upon its daily treck Descend beyond the peaks with flames encrowned And so the clouds reflected on the lake Burned brightly with a flam!ess, pinkish hue And in the twilight's disappearing wake The moon arose and brushed the lake with blue. And we alone were gifted with this time and place; A memory that age and space cannot erase.
