Sustainable Cinema Series features “Good Food” Thursday, September 27 at 6:30 pm
Dragonfly Cinema, 822 Bay Street Port Orchard

(Port Orchard) - The harvest season is upon us. Something remarkable is happening in the fields and orchards of the Pacific Northwest. After leaving the land for decades, family farmers are making a comeback. They are growing much healthier food, and more food per acre, while using less energy and water than factory farms. And most of this food is organic.

Mary Embleton, Executive Director, Cascade Harvest Coalition recommends “Good Food”. She says “The film visits many of the pioneers in the movement to ‘re-localize’ our food system and documents, first hand, the tremendous grassroots work that is being done here in the Northwest.”
Join a special discussion about local food with Commissioner Charlotte Garrido and the Kitsap Community Food Co-op. The Kitsap Food Co-op connects our local community with quality food products and information that promotes a healthy future for us. Together we work toward a world where mutually beneficial relationships exist between producers and purchasers.
The Sustainable Cinema Series offers films to stimulate community discussion about issues we care about. Kitsap County Commissioner Charlotte Garrido sponsors the series, held at the Dragonfly Cinema in downtown Port Orchard at 822 Bay Street. A $5 donation is suggested.
