“Local food production is the future of farming. As far as I’m concerned, the industrialization of our food production system has resulted in horrible and unintended consequences,” says Dr. Jonathan Lundgren, a research entomologist and one of three main subjects in this new film by from Oregon filmmakers Monica Murray and Chris Holmes. The other voices, Gail Fuller, a third generation farmer working in soil conservation, and Cameron Winery’s John Paul, share their own findings in practicing sustainable food cultivation and conservation of natural resources. Broken into three sections—science, soil, and water—each part explores the risks taken and trials endured as each forges a new path towards a better future in the face of corporate and government forces. Murray and Holmes will be on hand to present and talk about their film. Join the filmmakers for a reception prior to the film at 6pm.
