"FRESH is more than a movie, it’s a gateway to action. Our aim is to help grow FRESH food, ideas, and become active participants in an exciting, vibrant, and fast-growing movement."

Saturday night we had the opportunity to spend a perfect evening outdoors for a screening of Fresh, sponsored by The Geneva Green Market. Always interested in food and the its betterment, from farm to table I was excited to share this opportunity with many like minded eaters. The film featured Michael Pollan and farmers of all walks. It skillfully illustrated both sides of the issue and inspired viewers with all that is possible when we support this movement. Simply spending $10 of your weekly grocery budget at a local green market has countless repercussions - all positive.

Our theatre along the Fox River amongst wildflowers, waiting for dusk to fall.

Local "green" vendors were on hand to sell their wares. Great products for packing a green lunchbox, incredible oak rain barrels ( on my xmas list) and natural health options, too.

Viewers were encouraged to picnic in the park. Pumpkin and apple squares, cookies and ice cream were far better offerings than any theatre. There was hot coffee to warm from the inside out as the chill of Indian summer settled in.

A great way to spend an evening with my guys. I appreciate them joining me and continuing to support my efforts on behalf of the GGM, NFP. This outing allowed me to instill a bit more of the importance of Fresh-ness for the ones that matter to me the most.

You are such a good board member. We went to a vintage BMW show. Yay! Then a tantrum from our beloved child. So did you have a pumpkin square? After the tomato story, I haven't eaten anything. Good for my butt size, so a major positive. I love all the boys together, where is Ella?
