In the summer of 2016 I drove across Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina and interviewed nearly 20 farmers, community gardeners and food activists for an audio-visual project on the food movement in the South. This was in direct response to issues around Black Lives Matter, police brutality and violence, our impending health crises, the impact of social media and our time on screens, and our polarizing presidential election. I wanted to tell stories of people choosing peace, justice, nature, health, inclusiveness and connectedness over all else. People dedicating their energy out of good, genuine motivations. People with important stories that go untold due to the quiet nature of their work.
Here are some of those people. More coming soon.
