On August 2, the Katonah Village Library will host a free screening of Circle of Poison, the second in a series of documentaries demonstrating the connection between our food and the natural world. The goal of the library’s Food on Film series is to explore the importance of biodiverse, sustainable farming and the effects of industrial and ecological agriculture on the health of people and the planet.

The film will be shown at 7 p.m. in the accessible lowerlevel Garden Room. There will be an introduction, light refreshments and “meet the farmers” session before the screening, and a Q&A session afterward.

Guest speakers will include Doug Decandia of Bionutrient Food and Farming Group, food growing project coordinator at the Food Bank of Westchester; Deb Taft of Mobius Fields; and Jeff Cordulack, director of the Northeast Organic Farming Association. The series coordinator is Michele Durivage.

The third movie in the series, Queen of the Sun: What the Bees Are Telling Us, will be shown September 13.
