FRESH - film screening October 13 at the Original Princess

Panel discussion organized by Canadian Organic Growers Perth-Waterloo-Wellington to follow screening.

Waterloo - “In the documentary Fresh Ana Sofia Joanes provides a brisk indictment of industrial farming and its devastating toll on our soil, health and livestock. Making her argument are those committed to bucking the system, the farmers and beekeepers, lawyers and retailers, with alternative visions. Though the horror stories are here the film is more folksy in tone than the recent Food, Inc. and more focused on practical solutions.

“Less judgmental than many filmmakers, Ms. Joanes casts a sympathetic
eye on farmers under contract to the giants of agribusiness and acknowledges the challenge of transitioning to more sustainable methods. Neither does she ignore the class barrier to healthy eating.

“‘Medium-sized organic is far more productive than any-sized industrial agriculture,’ says the lawyer and author Andrew Kimbrell. The evidence is there among the happy heifers and industrious chickens on Joel Salatin’s Virginia farm, each bucolic acre yielding $3,000, compared with $150 from the farm next door.”
- Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times
