Kombucha Tea Party, Screening of “Where Are You Go,” and Live Music
September 26, 2009 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm EDT
The Sanctuary kicks off its Fall 2009 season with a permaculture project opening with tea party, a great new film, and three live bands!
Beginning at 6 PM, a Kombucha tea party will celebrate the opening of our new outdoor Vertical Mushroom Garden, a permaculture exhibit designed by Sara Worden and installed with help from Jack Magai. At 7 PM there will be a screening of Where Are You Go, a new film from directors Benny Zenga and Brian Vernor about their four-month, 7,000 mile bicycle adventure between Cairo and Cape Town with the Tour d’Afrique, one of the world’s longest bicycle races and expeditions.
Co-Sponsored by Troy Bike Rescue and the New York Bicycling Coalition.
Four months on a bicycle between Cairo, Egypt and Cape Town, South Africa is not your typical African safari. En route with the Tour d’Afrique, one of the world’s longest bicycle races and expeditions, the Zenga Brothers (Canada) and Brian Vernor (USA) make light of this physically daunting trip by sharing a universal love of the bicycle with Africa’s roadside mechanics, sporting racers, and innumerable curious strangers.
Traveling more than 70 miles per day, 50 racers and expedition riders experienced the boundless Nubian desert of Sudan, the great majesty of Victoria Falls, and finally the cold rush of the Atlantic Ocean.
Where Are You Go captures the 7,000 mile expedition as a constant adventure full of playfulness and mysterious beauty, and is a testament to the endurance of human curiosity
Following the screening will be live music by Restys, My Survival Kit, and Charlie Don’t Surf.
