Kali Wendorf sent me this announcement for an BayFM fundraiser. Danielle, Jude, Helena, Catriona are all well worth listening to. byronchild magazine presents two special Australian screenings of The Future of Food, a brilliant must-see documentary which examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat. The screenings are fundraisers for the Byron Bay High School and BayFM. The film, produced by Deborah Koons Garcia, is a chilling investigation into the Genetically Modified Organisms and foods that have quietly filled the grocery store shelves, and the multinational corporations that are seeking to control the world’s food system. The first screening on March 23rd, 7:30 pm, will be at the Byron Bay High School as a fundraiser for their five-year environmental plan. Tickets are on sale at the school. The second screening, on March 29th, a fundraiser for the local community radio station, Bay FM, will be followed by a panel discussion with Catriona MacMillan, co-founder of OTACnet; Helena Norberg-Hodge, founder and director of the International Society for Ecology and Culture; Jude Fanton, director of Seed Savers and Danielle Leonard, manager of Regenesis Farm. It will be held at the Community Centre at 7:00 pm.
