Description: The movie “Good Food” is portraying the evolvoing sustainable food system in the Pacific Northwest.

Something remarkable is happening in the fields and orchards of the Pacific Northwest. Small family farmers are making a comeback. They’re growing much healthier food, and lots more food per acre, while using less energy and water than factory farms.

For decades Northwest agriculture was focused on a few big crops for export. But to respond to climate change and the end of cheap energy, each region needs to produce more of its own food and to grow food more sustainably. Good Food visits producers, farmers’ markets, distributors, stores, restaurants and public officials who are developing a more sustainable food system for all.

    It is good to see that this region has stepped back somewhat from exporting so many crops and realizing that it makes more sense to live on them theirselves. The Northwest is one of the more ideal places for a movement such as this to begin because of the abundant space for local agriculture. Hopefully, the region’s cities will begin to move towards urban gardens and biospheres more. Looking forward to seeing the film.

    I went to see this movie and walked away feeling that their maybe hope for small to mid-size market farmers.
