“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 about a community that grows stronger as it relearns how to work together. 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.
Filmmakers Haley Thompson and Tomas Zuccareno will introduce the film and lead a post-screening discussion on sustainable communities, guides to grow by, and reclaiming our food.
