Film

“Broken Limbs is a very accurate and moving description of what is happening to agriculture in America.” – Fred Kirschenmann, Director, Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Iowa State University, organic farmer

BROKEN LIMBS, an Emmy nominated documentary, explores these hopeful stirrings within agriculture, and outlines ways in which any individual can play a role in saving America’s farmers. Told from a hometown perspective, the film presents the stories of farmers attempting to create this new model for agriculture and emerging, more sustainable solutions to the crises of recent years – solutions applicable not just to apples and not just to farming, but to nearly any sector of the American economy troubled by the effects of consolidation and globalization.

Potluck

Bring something (preferably vegetarian) to contribute to the potluck – bring enough food for yourself/family and a bit to share. The primary focus of the ‘Locavore’ potluck is to promote eating whole foods, in their nature-made state, focusing on fresh food from local sources (or as local as possible)

If not FROM BACKYARD then locally produced.
If not LOCALLY PRODUCED, then Organic.
If not ORGANIC, then Family farm.
If not FAMILY FARM, then Local business.
If not a LOCAL BUSINESS, then Fair Trade.

Freedom Garden Meetup

Join local homegrown revolutionaries – swap crops, seeds, expertise and more.   

Growing for 21st century food security, FreedomGardens.org is a free interactive, online social community of gardening enthusiasts who are fed up with foreign oil, frequent food miles and high food prices.

    This award winning film was made right here in my local area (north central Washington state). I’ve seen it, and it is a very moving documentary about what’s happening in our local agriculture scene.

    It is a worthy film, so if you’re in their area, make plans to see it! And, support your local farmer, if you aren’t growing your own! =;)
