Showing of Fresh at Civic Garden Center

SW OEFFA (Ohio Ecological Food and Farming Association) presents the movie Fresh followed by a panel discussion with local growers at the Civic Garden Center in Avondale (2715 Reading Rd, 45206).

From the movie's website:

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, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; 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.
Sunday, January 17th, 2:00 pm.  Free to OEFFA members/$3 for non members.  Local popcorn, cider, and microgreens will be served.  Reservations are needed to arrange the space.  RSVP by 1/15:  Call Sally at Turner Farm 561-7400 or email her.
