We all need to see the movie, FRESH.

Just when we thought the global food battle was lost to genetic engineering (GH) in Washington, D.C., along comes hope. I am thrilled to speak about the Good Food Movement. The movie FRESH will be out this spring. Happy Tonics, Inc. promotes the importance of local grown and organic crops and grass fed animals for dairy, poultry and meat.

FRESH the film is already marching forward with screenings in Wisconsin. You can view the film in Hayward, on January 31, at 2 p.m. at the Park Theatre. The film features Joel Salatin from Polyface Farms, Shenandoah, Virginia, and Will Allen, of California’s Growing Power. Both of these extraordinary people have been instrumental in the Good Food Movement. Allen says, “The Good Food Movement is now a Revolution.”

If each of us take this message home and practice it, we can change the global food marketplace one plate at a time. Margaret Meade said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Let us know how we can work together to promote food sustainability in our own neighborhoods right where we live. Home is where the heart is. Let’s hear from yours.

Good day,
Mary Ellen
