From Andrea Bemis:

What would it look like to eat food from a 200 mile radius of where you live? That was the basic question that started this whole thing.

I'm a farmer, a home cook and cookbook author. My husband Taylor and I (plus dogs Henry and Stoney) farm six acres below Oregon's Mt. Hood. We sell at the Hood River farmer's market, to local restaurants and to over 50 CSA members between the farm and Portland, 70 miles away.

The farm is where my heart is. It's exhausting, inspiring, calming, nerve-wracking, beautiful and terrifying. At this point I can't imagine another life.

But I can imagine a bigger sense of home. This film is about more than just an experiment to eat locally for a month. It's about reducing our dependance on outsourced ingredients, revitalizing ourselves and our economies, and discovering local landscapes and the people who grow/produce our food. You can't put a face to your food if you stay on your own farm all day.


Event opens with a screening of the short film, I AM HERE, a 7-minute documentary film about Yesenia Castro, a first generation Latina woman climbing Mt. St. Helens for the first time.
