FRESH, The Movie
On Friday, December 7 at 7:30 pm, the movie FRESH will be screened with discussion following at the Glenview New Church, 74 Park Drive, Glenview IL. This event is free and co-sponsored by Faith in Place, the Glenview League of Women Voters, and the Glenview New Church. The movie is being shown in conjunction with a Winter Farmers Market to be held the next morning Saturday December 8, from 9:00-1:00, at the same location. The Rev. Dr. Clare Butterfield, Executive Director of Faith in Place, will facilitate the discussion.
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.
