Event Description

Bring your open ears and mind, your friends, your popcorn, your comfiest sweater, your [organic cotton] snuggie...haha....WHATEVER! and check out a rad film featuring agriculture in, yours truly, the PACIFIC NORTHWEST!!

Excerpt from the website:

"Offers a celebration of those working to turn things around and make them right." Seattle International Film Festival
...
Something remarkable is happening in the fields and orchards of the Pacific Northwest. After leaving the land for decades, family farmers are making a comeback. They are growing much healthier food, and more food per acre, while using less energy and water than factory farms. And most of this food is organic.

For decades Northwest agriculture was focused on a few big crops for export. But climate change and the end of cheap energy mean that each region needs to produce more of its own food and to grow it more sustainably. Good Food visits farmers, farmers' markets, distributors, stores, restaurants and public officials who are developing a more sustainable food system for all.
