Locally Abundant

Two young Maritimers take a 4 month journey across Canada, from the East coast to the West coast, volunteering at 10 small-scale organic farms along the way. In an effort to connect with the people on the front line of sustainable food production in a society where large-scale farming is key to our economy, they work for the farms to learn more about them.

Their main thought is that small, ecologically responsible farms are a viable resource for food and also create a better environment for people and the country.

Along with interviews of the farmers themselves, this film includes segments by David Suzuki, and information on ‘factory farms’ and why the use of synthetic additives like fertilizers are hurting the people consuming the food.
