If you consider yourself a locavore, a supporter of family farms, or just a parent concerned about your children’s health and the future of the planet they will inherit, be sure not to miss the world premiere of Farmageddon–the Unseen War on American Family Farms, a mom-created film that documents the FDA’s raids on small farms.
For more information about the film and its D.C. run, see the the Weston A. Price Foundation’s this press release. Read more about the the film’s origins and its creator, Kristin Canty (who will be in town for the premiere weekend) at Hartke is Online!, the blog of WAPF publicist Kimberly Hartke.
