FRESH the movie

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, a 2008 recipient of the MacArthur "genius" grant and recently named one of Time's 100 most influential people; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur Joel Salatin, made famous by The Omnivore's Dilemma, the best-selling book by Michael Pollan, who is also featured in the movie; and, Kansas City supermarket owner David Ball, who is challenges our Wal-Mart-dominated economy every day by stocking his stores with products from local suppliers. watch a short clip on the link below

    Wow, talk about eye opening. I learned alot about how our food system runs. It really made me think about where my food comes from, and more importantly that me, myself and I can made a difference. I highly recommend checking it out.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
