I have to say, it is great to live in Florida where fresh, local food is abundantly available! Last month we had a showing of the FRESH a movie about eating more fresh foods, eating more locally, and eating more healthily. We had a great turn out for the film – AND – as a result of the discussions have started a place on Facebook to continue the discussions.
What cities are within 100 miles of Jacksonville, FL?
We would love to have you join us, too. We are sharing recipes, ideas about being sustainable, tips on local places and even a little advice is happening, too. Even if you’re not in the Jacksonville Area, please feel free to join us if the topic of being healthier, eating more locally and sustaining your family appeals to you.
Have you heard about FRESH? It’s a great documentary celebrating the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Reconnecting families with their food.
FRESH the movie
If you’re interested in see FRESH the movie, then this will be your chance. We are still working on a time, date and location for this showing – so please stay tuned.
In FRESH you’ll meet individuals who have 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.
Thanks to a friend on Facebook, I saw this story. What a great idea – and so very, very simple to reuse soda bottles as solar lighting. Watch the video and be inspired. I bet this would work in a lot of different ways reducing a little burden on our fossil dependency and wallets worldwide.
