Film Review: FRESH
If I were a cow, I’d want to live on Joel Salatin’s sustainable farm in Virginia. A worm? Give me farmer-activist Will Allen’s rich soil in Wisconsin any day. Of course, it would help to see their operations to understand my convictions. Short of traveling there, you can watch Fresh (Ripple Effect Productions, 2009) a new film that champions a few motivated people who are re-inventing our food system from one based on industrial agriculture to one rooted in, well, the earth.
Fresh's New York Green Carpet premiere screening is this Wednesday, April 7th. It's part of Whole Foods Markets' national film series, "Let's Retake Our Plates," which I blogged about last week. Find local listings for Freshhere, and register for Fresh-related events (like dinners!) here.
