Growing Up Cason: local farming family highlighted in the Virginia Film Festival

Director Doug Bari has documented a key part of Central Virginia’s Food Heritage in his film “Growing Up Cason,” a documentary about the Cason family of Charlottesville. The hardworking Casons and their 8 children farmed in the area through the Depression and the War, and four of the Cason sons helped found Charlottesville’s City Market.

The film will screen Saturday, November 5 at 1:00pm at Vinegar Hill Theater. You can purchase tickets online or at the door, and read more about the film in this review from the Daily Progress. Don’t miss it!
