The Coalition of Organic Landscape Professionals (COOL) and Seattle Tilth are proud to present the NW Premiere of the documentary film, 'A Chemical Reaction'.

This action set off a chain of high-profile court cases that culminated in the Canadian Supreme Court in 2001, where the town won in a landmark 9-0 decision.
