Any Organic Thematic Filmatic Philanthropists Out There?

Jul 29, 2008 July 29, 2008

Two Patagonia employees from our Upper West Side store, Eric Taber and Emily Triantaphyllis, are involved in the creation of a new independent film called What’s Organic About Organic? The film — a character-based mosaic that delves into the debates that arise when a grassroots agricultural movement evolves into a booming international market — has been shot but the post-production is on hold until the team can raise a few more bucks.

The filmmakers recently received a grant from the Farmers Advocating for Organics (FAFO) fund, and part of that grant is a matching funds component. If you believe in spreading the good word about organic farming please consider making a donation to this project. In Emily’s words, "Here’s a great chance to contribute to a film that will begin the dialogue necessary to really evaluate what sustainable agriculture is and how it can benefit our health AND our environment."

Have a look at the trailer then visit What’s Organic About Organic? for more details. The deadline for matching funds from FAFO is August 1, 2008; donations are tax deductible.
