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.  http://vimeo.com/5309127

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. www.spinfarming.com
