Something remarkable is happening in the fields, ranches and orchards of the Pacific Northwest. Family farmers are making a comeback. They're growing much healthier food, and lots 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 to respond to climate change and the end of cheap energy, each region needs to produce more of its own food and to grow food more sustainably. Good Food visits producers, farmers' markets, distributors, stores, restaurants and public officials who are developing a more sustainable food system for all.
Come watch this timely film. Our own local film makers Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin will join us in a community discussion of the food relocalization movement.
