“Organic Frederick” Documentary Broadcast Premiere

“Organic Frederick: A Portrait of a Growing Community.” a documentary
by Maryland filmmaker and long-time organic consumer, Katherine
Lukaszewicz, will have its broadcast premiere on Frederick TV, Comcast
Cable 10 July 31 at 7pm (Frederick, Maryland). The film will air for
two weeks, twice a day, at 7 pm and 8:30 pm, (Monday- Friday), until
August 14.

The film explores how organics are entering the American mainstream,
one community, like Frederick, Maryland, at a time by examining the
connections on the organic chain between farmers, grocers, retailers,
government agencies supporting organics, and consumers.

With the annual sales of organic products steadily increasing, the
documentary comes at a timely period when, fueled by growing consumer
demand, the organic industry is poised to explode onto the mainstream

Former Maryland Governor, Robert Ehrlich, introduces the film and
national television personality and health expert, Dr. Andrea
Pennington, is the narrator. Ed Roy provided original music.
Lukaszewicz created, wrote and produced the film on a very small budget
to bring organic awareness to her community. “The more people buy
organic products, the more they support organic agriculture, and
therefore a healthier environment for themselves, their families and
the planet,” says Lukaszewicz.
