Screening of Ripe for Change and discussion with the filmakers.
This documentary film looks at the intersection of agriculture and politics in California over the past 30 years, examining the increasing interest in sustainable agriculture, better food for school lunch programs (featuring Berkeley's own Edible Schoolyard), community-supported agriculture, and farmer's markets. The film was featured in the 4-part PBS series California and the American Dream, and the Ripe for Change trailer can be seen on YouTube.
Filmmakers Emiko Omori and Jed Riffe will be present for discussion after the screening.
