About "FRESH":

"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. How do I see "FRESH"? *We are currently not selling individual copies of the DVD, rather, we are selling various sized screening licenses which give you the right to screen the film in front of an audience, whether it be to raise funds for a particular cause or organization, or simply to educate. We believe that a positive change to the sustainable food movement is going to largely be the result of groups of people rallying together and we want "FRESH" to be something for groups to engage around. We want "FRESH" to be an activist tool.
