In the fall of 2011, York College featured the film “Fresh,” which addresses the American food system and inspires communities to re-invent it.
Transition York is showing the film again, at 7 p.m. April 3 at York Friends Meeting, 135 W. Philadelphia St. in York. Admission is free, and donations are accepted.
According to the group’s news release, “‘Fresh’ outlines the vicious cycle of our current food production methods, while celebrating the farmers, thinkers and business people around America who are reinventing our food system.”
Characters include best-selling author Michael Pollan, professors, activists and farmers who are examining their practices and inspiring change.
“Both an enlightening documentary and a stirring call to action, ‘Fresh’ transforms the way we look at food,” the release states.

Are you interested in sprouting seeds for eating, but are nervous to try it yourself?
Check out the free workshop “Sprouting: Simple and Easy” by Johhn Pranze at 4 p.m. April 7 at the Art Farm, 111 S. Queen St. in York. Pranze will talk about what can be sprouted and how, with samples of lentil sprouts to try.
