Buying Local

Spin and the Art of Growing Locally

Here’s a short film recommendation.  Long a supporter of organic agriculture, and a graduate of Fresno State’s mainstream agriculture program in the 1980′s, I resonate with the individuals in this film who argue for re-centralizing food production – both practically and in the popular consciousness. It heartened me to see other former Aggies speaking out for a better use of the land, despite what the land grant colleges may espouse.

There’s more support than ever for fledgling food producers. SPIN Farming offers helpful information and support for those who want to produce and sell food locally. It offers a blueprint for small scale yet commercially viable food production in neighborhoods and rural settings.
