You'll be celebrating with local foodies, characters from the movie, sustainability advocates, members of the arts community, and the pro-Cleveland contingent.

Launching a Green Platform

This unique collaboration between two Cleveland startups will officially launch the national distribution of PolyCultures. The movie was featured in the "Local Heroes" and "It's Easy Being Green" series at the 33rd Annual Cleveland International Film Festival in March. Now LESS is making it available for community screenings, theatrical showings, educational use, library circulation, and home use through

Come on down to have a good time and help us begin to spread the seeds of a revolutionary way of eating throughout the nation! It's time for the U.S. to see how far Cleveland has come in transforming itself from a Rust Belt town to a leader in the local foods movement.

An Historical Event: The Cuyahoga as the Catalyst
In the 1960s Cleveland's main waterway, the Cuyahoga, was one of the dirtiest rivers in the U.S. So polluted with oil slicks and debris, it caught fire several times - including one episode on June 22, 1969 that caused Time Magazine to describe the Cuyahoga as the river that "oozes rather than flows." It was truly a low point in the long and storied history of Cleveland but helped spark national environmental reforms and was a catalyst for the restoration of this once great riverway. On the 40th anniversary of that fire, join us for a unique event that symbolizes Northeast Ohio's environmental rejuvenation and, in fact, significant leadership role in issues of sustainability.
