Last Pre-Screening

Last night we concluded the last in a series of pre-screening events. Scientists, agriculturalists, editors, and directors came together at the Saul Zaentz Media Center in Berkeley to lend us their eyes and ears for the evening.

With enthusiasm, they patiently waded through the latest version of the film- saving their comments until the end, when we handed out questionnaires and pens.

Farm Bill: Take One

Last night we showed a part of SOS at a Farm Bill briefing for supporters of CALCAN, the California Climate Action Network, an umbrella organization for a tight group of California non-profits that are coming together to organize around the Farm Bill.

Deborah spoke briefly about the imperative that those aware of what a sustainable Farm Bill would look like have in the next year. She mentioned the need to respect the soil at the base of any solutions that may change the way the US treats and funds agriculture.

Together with Tom Philpott, and Dan Imhoff,Deborah made powerful case for the support of CALCAN, and for everything that needs to be defended by supporters of Sustainable Agriculture.
