MORE THAN FARMING: Young Farmers and the New Food Movement

MORE THAN FARMING



There's a growing movement throughout this country to return to a sustainable way of farming, a holistic way of cultivating the soil, a conscious way of eating, and a more enlightened way of looking at our relationship with food. And within that movement, incredibly inspiring work is being carried out by young farmers. These highly-motivated, intelligent, idealistic, and sometimes unconventional folks are both carrying the torch passed on by their predecessors, and… Continue

EAT LOCAL GAMEPLAN

Ok. After reading my last blog, you understand some of the reasoning behind eating local and supporting your community of growers and producers. And hopefully you're with us now. Hopefully you were with us before that, but regardless, you've now boarded the Eat-Local-Mobile and you're ready to roll. In fact, you find… Continue

WHY EAT LOCAL?

What does it mean to truly eat local? Why would we want to eat local in the first place? And if someone was crazy enough to truly want to eat local, How would they go about doing it?

WHAT



Over the past decade, the local food movement has finally made its way back into the fringes of our culture's mainstream. I use the word back because our short memories neglect to remind us that during the early years of… Continue

Food Sources

Food for Thought, Food for Life (2015) | IMDb

We want our food fast, convenient and cheap, but at what cost? As farms become supersized our environment suffers and so does the quality of our food. FOOD FOR THOUGHT, FOOD FOR LIFE wants to start a revolution in the food system. This film will be a conversation starter inspiring us to think differently about what we eat, and to make changes that will positively impact our health, our earth and our communities. A driving and optimistic soundtrack by the indie band Cloud Cult punctuates interviews with such visionaries as poet Wendell Berry, chef Dan Barber, and guerilla urban gardener Ron Finley. Viewers will be inspired by the fast-paced infographics, stories of change, and left with a real-time 'what you can do right now' message.

The Starfish Throwers (2014) | IMDb

Powerful, direct and heartrending, The Starfish Throwers explores how three of the world's most fiercely compassionate individuals struggle to restore hope to the hopeless in unexpected and sometimes dangerous ways. Continents apart, a sixth grader, a top chef and retired school teacher fight what seems an unwinnable war until they discover their impact may reach further than their action.

This "Mad Genius" Organic Farmer's Ideas Are Working. He's Grossing $100K An Acre...

What kind of super-fertilizer allows Paul Kaiser to grow so much food on a mere 8 acres? Lot’s of rotten food scraps and rotten plants – otherwise known as compost. And he uses loads of it. He uses farming practices both old, and cutting-edge-new so well that agricultural specialists from University of California at Davis who have tested his top soil can drive a four-foot steel pole all the way through his fields. This, as opposed to most parts of California, where it would hit infertile hard-pan in less than 12 inches. Last year, Kaiser’s farm located in Sonoma Valley, CA grossed more than $100,000 an acre, too. This is ten times the average for most farmers of this area, even in lucrative wine-country.
