FRESH the Movie Returns to Minneapolis

Source: Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture

FRESH the movie returns to Minneapolis just in time for Earth Day with showings at the Riverview this week! Wed & Thur @ 7pm. Come @ 6:30 to check out info from all of our partner organizations:
Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
Land Stewardship Project
The Wedge Coop
Organic Valley and much more!

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.
