Perhaps better known to many as ‘Jerry’s wife’, Deborah Koons Garcia created this highly acclaimed documentary that has been a powerful educational tool for bringing to light the dangerous trends toward all of our food supply being overwhelmed by genetically engineered and corporate controlled seeds.
The Future of Food continues to be shown throughout the world at film festivals, in classrooms, and as part of environmental, farming and cultural events. The film continues to enjoy the support of a wide range of organizations—from the Organic Consumers Association, to the Soil Association of Britain, to Slow Food.
The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops.
