The Rollers started Josephine’s Organic Greens on St. John in November 2006. Despite island challenges of poor soil, harsh weather and cost of land, they have persevered giving St. John restaurants, visitors and residents a flavorful, healthy, local choice for organic greens and herbs.
The film illustrates that the organic food debate extends well beyond personal choice and into the realm of social responsibility,according to a news release about the event. It delves into the debates that arise when a grassroots agricultural movement evolves into a booming international market.
The St. John Film Society screening will be Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7:30pm at the St. John School of the Arts in Cruz Bay. Free.

Way to go St. John Film society, this is such an important island issue, and hopefully the screening will spark more ongoing dialogue about improving island food systems.
I can’t begin to applaud Josephine enough.
Her artwork is delicious agricultural engineering.
