WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — "Place of Stones: Food in Motion," a film about local food and farming, is being featured on WilliNet. The film will air on WilliNet's channel 17 and will be available online through Feb. 9. 

The film will be aired:
► Dec. 31 at 9 p.m. Saturdays at noon, excluding Jan. 29, which will air at 7 p.m.
► Fridays at 7 p.m., except on Jan. 28 (no show)
► Wednesdays every other week at  9 p.m. and 1 p.m.  (check schedule)
 
To access online viewing or to check the daily schedule go to www.willinet.org.
 
Sharon Wyrrick filmed Places of Stones between 2008 and 2010, which features farms, community gardens, school gardens, food assistance programs, restaurants, retail venues and other local initiatives through interviews and on-site footage. She considers Place of Stones a documentary about developing efforts in the Northern Berkshires to strengthen local food and agriculture.
 
"I wanted the film to cast a broad swath and give opportunity for farmers, local leaders and participants in the local food movement to have a chance to tell their story," Wyrrick said. "In this way, the film has many stories to tell with the larger story being a chronicle of the truly remarkable community-wide focus on increasing access to locally produced food."
 
The film chronicles the effort of a group of local citizens to catalyze a new community-supported agriculture farm that would be accessible to people of all income levels. This effort began as a part of "Target Hunger: North Berkshire," a program of The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. It resulted in the founding of a community organization, Hoosac Harvest, and an ongoing subsidized community supported agricultare share program in collaboration with Square Roots Farm in the summer of 2010.
 
The film first premiered at the Farm Film Feast Festival at Images Cinema in April 2012.
 
"I had two big surprises in this film project," Wyrrick said. "The first was that so much could change in such a short period of time between when the filming ended in 2010 and now. The second is that I would start my own small farming effort, Many Forks Farm, in Clarksburg in the summer of 2012."
