AN AFTERNOON FOR FOOD PRODUCERS, GARDENERS AND SUPPORTERS OF LOCALLY GROWN FOOD

Growing Local (USA, 2014, 3x15min): While “buying local” is on the rise, the stories in Growing Local make clear that small farms and access to locally produced food is not a sure thing.These three poignant stories help us understand the interconnected fates of small farms, consumers and the local food movement.
