The filmmakers are the recipients of the Georgia Organics ‘Barbara Petit Pollinator Of The Year Award 2012 for GROW! The award honors an individual or organization for outstanding community leadership in pollinating Georgia’s sustainable farming and food movement.
Because our food system is broken, more young people need to start considering organic and sustainable farming as a viable career choice. People with land, money and knowledge need to start enabling them. Communities need to support them.
GROW! provides a look at this new generation of sustainable farmers through the eyes, hearts and minds of 20 passionate, idealistic and fiercely independent young growers. In the film they speak of both the joys and the challenges involved in tending the land.
Filmed in Georgia, USA.
