The folks over at the West Virginia Food and Farm Coalition have put together some terrific videos covering some of the great things happening to support local farms, local communities and healthy eating in West Virginia. From their blog:
Launched by the West Virginia Food & Farm Coalition in January 2012, the "Fresh Ideas In Action" Series highlights important issues, succesful projects and inspiring entrepreneurs within West Virginia's local food system. Each 6-minute audio-visual "snapshot" is a unique story, told by the people who've lived it, about a model or idea that is successfully getting more local food from producer to consumer, or promises to do so.
