Two young freegans are awarded a grant that pays their rent in a nice apartment for three months. Starting with nothing, they furnish the apartment, gather complete wardrobes, and feed themselves (very well) all without spending a cent. Come see this fascinating look into the world of the freegans, young people who live on the cast-offs of our throw-away culture.

Locavore: Farmers, fertility, food, and films depicting these foundation blocks to a genuine community based food system. But wait – it’s you who actually drives it! Come see, listen, and discuss these topics and more with the likes of Deborah Koons Garcia of “Future of Food” fame, horticultural photographer and life-long food producer David Cavagnaro (former Seed Savers Exchange Preservation Gardens manager and five books), and dietician Angie Tagtow, a Food and Society Fellow pursuing the “Soil to Food to Health” connections as we meander through some of the realities of eating here – even if “here” is Japan. Hosted by Land Stewardship Project and moderated by Caroline van Schaik.
Film: “Soil In Good Heart” A Short Piece From a Full Length Project on the Mystery of Fertility.” Written, directed, produced, and to be introduced in person by Deborah Koons Garcia.
Speaker: Deborah Koons Garcia – A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Deborah Koons Garcia has called Northern California home for over thirty years. Her most recent film, The Future of Food (2004), examines alarming issues surrounding the rapidly increasing corporate domination of our food supply. It is the first major film to cover the history and technology of genetic engineering and the complex implications of untested genetically engineered crops on the environment and unlabelled foods on consumers. Garcia’s other film credits include All About Babies, Poco Loco and Grateful Dawg, a documentary featuring her late husband, Jerry Garcia, of the Grateful Dead.
Slide show by David Cavagnaro depicting the extraordinary diversity (and beauty) of food and our need to stay ever connected to it.
