San Francisco + food movement + tomorrow

Hoping to spend tomorrow discussing sustainable & safe food systems? Well, you have *two* intriguing events to choose from December 1st 2009.

The first promises some controversy. Our friends at Slow Food SF are organizing a panel discussion featuring panelists from both sides of the food movement aisle.

The Slow Food SF Eat In, September 2009

Starting at 6:45pm at the S.F. Public Library’s Koret Auditorium (100 Larkin & Grove) the panel will feature Douglas Gayeton (author of the book Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town),  Sarah Rich, Sam Mogannam from Bi-Rite, farmer Casey Havre, chef Michelle Fuerst, and Slow Food SF’s very own  Dava Guthmiller. After this spirited debate Slow Food will be hosting a book signing/exception/reception at 18 Reasons in the Mission. (Via Mary Ladd & SFoodie)

Looking to learn more about Permaculture in the Mission tomorrow? Look no further! December 1st 7-9pm Movie Night @ The Red Poppy Art House (2698 Folsom Street @ 23rd Street) will be showing the Geoff Lawton  film, Introduction to Permaculture Design (What I’m sure will be)  a spirited Q & A will follow the screening with Kevin Bayuk and David Cody answering your questions.  Given David Stockhausen’s recent and very positive experience with Permaculture this event is too tempting for us to pass up. Hope to see you there!

The Yes Men vs. Bottled Water & Coca Cola

“A genderless, loose-knit association of some 300 impostors worldwide who agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce,” The Yes Men are back with a new film and all new corporate pranks! The Yes Men, along with the Think Outside the Bottle Campaign are spreading the word that bottled water, while often making claims of health benefits, is less regulated than city water and has serious environmental consequences. Plus about 40% of it comes from the same source as tap water. (Via Huffington Post Green)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The Yes Men Change The World (see trailer below) is now playing in very select cities, and the (hilarious) 2003 film, The Yes Men can be watched via Netflix streaming. Enjoy!
