‘Farmageddon’ In Sedona

Saturday evening August 20, 2011 the documentary, “Farmageddon”, was presented to a packed house at the Sedona Public Library. The movie, which was organized by Sandy Boyce of Sandy’s Produce, was followed by a panel discussion and a request for those who attended to sign a petition for a “Local Food Ordinance” for Sedona. The petition is located here. And here is what the petition says:

“We the People of the City of Sedona have the right to produce, process, sell, purchase and consume local foods, thus preserving family farms, and local food traditions.

“We have faith in our citizens ability to educate themselves and make informed decisions. We hold that federal and state regulations impede local food production and constitute a usurpation of our citizens right to foods of their choice.

“Producers or processors of local foods in the City of Sedona are exempt from licensure and inspection provided that the transaction is only between the producer or processor and a patron when the food is sold for home consumption.”

I just finished signing it and encourage those of you who live in Sedona to do likewise.

I also encourage those of you who missed the movie, to track it down. It was a must-watch eye-opener! You can find more information about the movie here:





Finally, to give those of you who missed the big event a sense of what happened, I’ve posted some photos from the gathering here.
