Sustainable agriculture and local food are two topics commonly discussed at our College. In an effort to dig in and explore these topics more, we decided make this the center of our Media Advocacy and Campaigns class project taught by Jason Schmitt. The assignment requires us to create a media campaign that advocates for an issue or a cause and link it to Earth Day. What started out as a simple class assignment has already evolved into something that allows my group members (Robert Holloway, Natalie House, Jesse Thompson) and I to contribute to our community by providing a lens into our food system using documentary video. Our project looks to bring part of the focus of Earth Day back to our local food system in and around Poultney by creating awareness, taking part in discussions, creating relationships and finding ways to serve our community. We identified that although sustainable agriculture and local food are frequently discussed especially on campus, these discussions don’t emphasize important parts of our food system such as migrant workers, community partnerships and consumer-producer communication. As a result, we are interviewing community members at all levels our food system in hopes of stimulating further discussion on campus and in our community.” -Kim Barrett
