Let’s Build Our Community and Our Local Food System:
Shelley Rogers, Director/Producer of the acclaimed documentary, “What’s Organic About
Organic?” is delighted to host a screening with special guest Erin Barnes. Erin founded ioby,
(pronounced eye-OH-be), a name that stands for In Our Backyards (ioby.org).

beautiful and professional environment while fostering individual work.
