Last night Aaron and I attended a screening and panel discussion for the new documentary, Fresh. It is such a fantastic, fantastic film. It’s a discussion about where our food comes from that gives us a look into industrial farming, which is so depressing and eye-opening. But also shows people who are doing amazing things like farmers Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms (who you may remember from Omnivore’s Dilemma) and Will Allen of Growing Power. It was so inspiring to see people who had solutions to this problem and were so passionate about the cause. I actually got so caught up with the film that I forgot there was a panel discussion with Mr. Salatin, Mr. Allen, Joan Gussow (Just Food), and Josh Viertel (Slow Food). When they walked out I wanted to scream with excitement like a schoolgirl. Yeah, it’s that good.
