FREE Screening of the film "Good Food"
January 14th @ the Darkside Cinema in Corvallis, OR
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.
Please join us on January 14th, 2010 at the Darkside Cinema here in Corvallis for a film hosted by Oregon Tilth that is sure to make an everlasting imprint in your mind. Film starts at 7pm with discussion before (so come early) and after facilitated by Harry MacCormack, founder of Oregon Tilth and owner of Sunbow Farm.
