STN Film Series: FRESH

Souhegan Transition Network sponsors the film FRESH at the Wilton Town Hall Theater on Sunday, January 12 at 4:30 pm. 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, recipient of a MacArthur Genius Award in 2008; 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.

Please come and join us for a free showing of this film. (Donations will be gratefully accepted for the work of STN in seeking healthier and more resilient ways of creating community and for the work of the Wilton Town Hall Theater in transitioning to digital film equipment.)

Also, please plan to stay for refreshments and discussion!

    Here’s a link to the film’s web site: http://www.freshthemovie.com/. Just watching the 3-minute trailer made me value the CSA we belong to even more.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
