DVD Screening

‘Fresh’

9.30 am

 

FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.

 

Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

 

All workshops and DVD screenings commence at 9.30 am (unless otherwise indicated) and go for approx 1 1/2 to 2 hours. These events and workshops are open to everyone in the community, not just members and volunteers at the Gardens and there is no need to book a place.
