Birchwood Cafe is a sponsor of the FRESH film and Tracy Singleton (Birchwood owner) will be moderating the post panel discussions on Wed & Thursday.FRESH returns to Minneapolis just in time for EARTH DAY! ??FRESH is celebrating their theatrical release with showings this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night @ 7pm at the Riverview Theater.?? 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. 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. http://action.freshthemovie.com/p/d/freshthemovie/event/display-theater-event.sjs?event_KEY=19557
