Join Community Markets as they host a one-night-only screening of Fixing the Future, a documentary dedicated to “the reinvention of the American economy.” After the film, the audience in Pelham will talk about creating sustainable livelihoods with area advocates who are working on the ground now. The panel will include social entrepreneur Mike Brady, CEO of Greyston Bakery; John Bell, Director of Transition Westchester; and Jon Zeltsman, President of Community Markets.
In Fixing the Future, host David Brancaccio (of public radio’s Marketplace and NOW on PBS) visits locations across America that are using innovative, sustainable approaches to create jobs and build prosperity. From initiatives such as worker cooperatives and “time banks” to community banks and local currencies, the film features stories of solution. For Community Markets, a company that has managed farmers markets in and around the Hudson Valley for over twenty years, the film’s message falls in line with our mission to create opportunities for local food producers and consumers to build the regional food economy.
