Fresh Movie Screening!

We are co-hosting a free screening of the movie Fresh this Saturday, August 22nd and we'd like to invite everyone to come! Fresh is a documentary by Ana Sofia Joanes which features interviews with Michael Pollan and a tour of Joel Salatin's farm, as well as highlighting the work of other farmers and business people who are creating a more healthy and sustainable way of growing food that is accessible to everyone.

Unlike some other recently released food documentaries, Fresh isn't about scaring us with the gory details of why the current industrial system is making us and the planet sick. Rather, it's a hopeful and inspiring collection of tales about people who are already making positive changes and proving that it can be done.

There will also be a few local growers, such as North Star Orchard, who will be in attendance to help answer questions and be a voice for the sustainable farming community in southeastern Pennsylvania. Buy Fresh Buy Local will be providing listings of local food producers.

Please join us this Saturday, August 22nd, 7:00 pm at the London Grove Friends Meetinghouse, 500 West Street Road, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
