Patagonia Film Calls for a Food Revolution
By Violet Batcha
Most of the food Americans eat is produced in ways that harm the environment and worsen climate change. The federal government subsidizes unhealthy crops that have contributed to Americans' expanding waistlines, while Monsanto and big agriculture push pesticides and genetically modified seeds on farmers.
Our food system is broken. But a new short film from Patagonia Provisions, the food division of the outdoor clothing chain, argues that it doesn't have to be this way.
"People are making a statement; we appreciate the way you farm & are willing to help along the way." #UnbrokenGround https://t.co/E8w5lG0exH— Patagonia Provisions (@Patagonia Provisions)1470409057.0
Unbroken Ground highlights farmers, fishers, ranchers and researchers who are exploring food production strategies that aim to change our relationship with land and oceans. If we invest in more sustainable ways to farm and fish, food can—as it should—be part of the solution to environmental problems.
