Snacks and a chat with the director.
Join the Intervale Center for a meet & greet with FRESH director Ana Sofia Joanes at Bluebird Tavern. Tickets cost $30 and include Bluebird snacks and a ticket to see FRESH at the Roxy that night at 7:00 p.m. Cash Bar.
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and businesspeople 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.
