    Half-acre farm at City College keeps on growing

    We're all for going green and eating organic cuisine. But does it have to be so darn expensive?

    Right now, at the Academy of Natural Sciences at 1900 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, there's a reception going on for the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival.

    Films, including “Fridays at the Farm” by local filmmaker Richard Hoffman, will beging airing at 4 p.m., followed by a break at 5:15 p.m., and then more shorts until 7 p.m. "Fridays at the Farm" showcases Hoffman's experiences as a member of a community-supported organic farm in suburban Philly.

    The cost for attending the films and dinner? 150 big ones. Or you could just see the films only for $35. (And if you're a student, the deal's even better at $15.)

    Of course, shelling out a wad of cash to eat in a place called Dinosaur Hall might be the real draw, with locally grown organic cuisine on your plate the ozone layer in the atmosphere.
