Kwantlen presents Good Food

It's been called a film to awaken our taste buds and our courage.

It's Good Food, a documentary showcasing sustainable farming and agricultural initiatives in the Pacific Northwest, where family farming is staging an unlikely comeback.

The 2008 movie screens as part of Kwantlen's next Green Wednesday event.

"Exhilarating," wrote William Arnold of the now-defunct Seattle P-I. "Chronicles a veritable revolution going on all around us," he added. "This is not out to scare us with an environmental horror story so much as to inspire us."

Filmmakers Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin visit producers' farms, farmers markets, distributors, stores, and restaurants.

They discover northwest farmers are growing healthier food, with a higher yield per acre, while using less energy and water than factory farms.

The movie is presented Jan. 13 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Langley campus, room 1325, 20901 Langley By-pass.

The movie will be followed by a Q&A session. Admission is by donation. Refreshments and door prizes. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., film at 7 p.m. Contact 604-599-3311 or Gary.Jones@Kwantlen.ca
