The Organic Movement’s Pioneers Tell Their Story in a New Documentary!
“Evolution of Organic,” a new documentary by San Francisco filmmaker Mark Kitchell, details the origins of a movement that grew out of the vision of West Marin food producers, among others.
The organic food movement exploded in the early ’80s after a representative from Berkeley’s Chez Panisse visited Bolinas with a peculiar request. As detailed in a new documentary by San Franciscan filmmaker Mark Kitchell, forager Sibella Kraus came out to Star Route Farm in search of ingredients for a mesclun—a Provencal salad of small, leafy greens. The story begins there (here) and continues today around the world!
