About

The Ecology Learning Center, in collaboration with the Maine Organic Farmer's and Gardeners Association presents the powerful film Seeds of Change.

An organic farmer in Maine sets out to transform the Prison food system. Filmed over the course of two-years, Seeds of Change chronicles the intersecting stories of lifelong farmer Mark McBrine and several incarcerated men as they grow their own food on a five-acre prison garden unlike any other.

Nick Callanan, Director of the Maine Outdoor Film Festival calls it “a complex piece of narrative-building, such an elevated work,” and Governor Janet Mills says “I am proud of this work…Seeds of Change is fundamentally a story of hope.” Seeds of Change premiered at the 2023 Maine International Film Festival and has gone on to receive numerous accolades and awards across the country, including Best Maine Film at the Maine Outdoor Film Festival.
