Mesa Verde Guide to Local Food Initiatives
Regional farmers gave me food for thought and film fodder for "Heart & Soil," but most importantly they offered their authentic selves. I highlighted the unsung, sometimes quirky but always intelligent and informed heroes, the poets of planting and harvest, husbandry and wool, crafting the earth to yield sustainable nourishment for their family and community. The film is inspiring people across the globe to visit farmer's markets, grow their own food and understand even if local food may cost a bit more, it's worth it not just for taste, but for our long term ability to thrive on the planet.
