Special Screening of FOOD FIGHT March 24th in Los Angeles
Chris Taylor’s documentary “FOOD FIGHT” looks at how American agricultural policy and food culture developed in the 20th century, and how mavericks in California rebelled against big agribusiness to launch the local organic food movement.
This special event includes a post-screening panel with chef Suzanne Goin, KCRW’s Evan Kleiman, LA Times food & wine columnist Russ Parsons, organic farmer Thetis Sammons, and film producer-director Chris Taylor.

Join the Santa Barbara City College Center for Sustainability for a rare chance to spend time with one of the most innovative thinkers of our times. Author of the newly published book “The Blue Economy, 10 Years, 100 Innovations, 100 Million Jobs” Gunter Pauli challenges us to give up doomsday thinking…
Gunter Pauli suggests by emulating nature we can evolve from an economy based on scarcity to an economy based on abundance—the cascading, nutrient rich, Blue Economy. Founder of Zero Emissions Research Initiatives (ZERI) Global Network, Gunter Pauli pioneered the concept of waste being seen as a resource that with creative thinking, can be used to create multiple enterprises from singular ones, with benefits for the economy and the environment. Pauli is fond of saying that returns on investment from these kinds of business models far exceed those of companies like Microsoft.
Gunter Pauli, famous eco-entrepreneur and passionate proponent of green development worldwide, is the former president of Ecover biodegradable soap company who built Europe’s first ecological factory. Pauli is the founder of Worldwatch Europe, and a member of the Club of Rome and directs the Zero Emissions Research Initiative (ZERI) at the United Nations University in Tokyo. He lectures regularly to business executives and governments, and is the author of 17 books in 21 languages. Event Info Provided By Santa Barbara Permaculture HERE >> April 23rd & 24th
