Mission


HOW WE GROW seeks to tell the story that digs deeper- beyond the farmers markets and local food access into the ways in which communities rebuild themselves around agriculture. The film is a coming of age story of a community re-learning how to work together and growing stronger in the process. Inspired by the drive and dedication of the next generation of agricultural leaders in the Roaring Fork Valley, the community explores how to overcome pressing issues. Land access, income inequality, and a short growing season turn from barriers into levers as these ambitious young farmers discover ways to get healthy, sustainably produced, locally grown, nutrient dense food onto the tables of everyone in the community. Healthy soil depends on many organisms working together. A healthy community needs the same. HOW WE GROW looks at the characters and systems of farming, education, legislation, micro-finance, and food equity that are shifting the ways we think about food and our relationship to the land. Together we create a food system that works for everyone. This is HOW WE GROW.
