The Rockland Farm Alliance will present the acclaimed film, In Defense of Food, at Rockland County’s Nyack Center in Nyack, NY. Based on Michael Pollan's 2008 book, which was inspired by a speech that Piermont resident Joan Gussow shared with Michael, the film explores the risks of diet-related diseases, and the value of eating healthy foods. Joan, a noted nutritionist and author, will introduce the film, which is sponsored by Rivertown Film Society, and participate in a panel after the film, along with RFA president, John McDowell, and Cropsey Community Farm manager Pearl Wetherall.
