Why Local Food?

Many folks are waking up to how dysfunctional the industrial food system is. What is less-known is how many communities, farms, cities and individuals have developed brilliant and hopeful ways to grow local food systems…sometimes in unexpected directions. That’s what we want to show you with films, classes and conversations. Because once inspired by creative and sustainable solutions—ones that support real farms, real food and local economies—who knows what wonderful things we can accomplish.
