This Friday, Kristin Canty’s film, Farmageddon, will open in Chicago.
Kristin Canty’s son was healed of multiple allergies by farm fresh foods, among them raw milk. When she heard of the armed raids and seizures taking place on family farms she was horrified. And knew she had to do something about it. In this film, Canty lets these small farmers tell their stories.
On Monday, August 29th, there will be a special screening of this New York Times Critic’s Pick film, with Guy Meikle, the Executive Chef of Nana, Bridgeport’s first organic restaurant. In addition to drawing awareness to the healing power of food, the event will also highlight the ShowYourHearts.org campaign that is helping two boys who were orphaned and seriously injured by a car accident.
