For the last seven years, I have been fortunate to work with Patagonia on a very cool project, which is now known as Patagonia Provisions. It’s a food company whose reason for existence is to make delicious food that’s good for people and the planet. Along the way, I’ve met some of the most inspiring people around–people who are growing, raising, catching and making food in ways that can help solve the current environmental crisis. The passion and knowledge these people bring to the food world is mind blowing.
This movie, made by my friend Chris Malloy, introduces these people and shows what they’re doing. Which to me, is really amazing stuff–reef netting for salmon off Lummi Island, raising free-roaming buffalo in South Dakota, pioneering new crops and ways to grow and use them in Kansas and the Skagit Valley. And now, you can see the film this coming Thursday, June 30th, 7:00pm at the Seattle Patagonia store. Come on out if you can make it–we’ll have good food, beer, and conversation with Chris and some of the people featured in the film.
