24 states. 24 farms. 50 hours of footage & interviews. This is the story of the local food movement.

In February 2012, Nicole Cormier, Registered Dietitian and Jim Lough, Organic Farmer, both from Massachusetts, embarked on a coast-to-coast road trip, stopping at one organic farm in every state along the route. Each visit was documented with candid interviews of the farmers and vivid photographs of the farms.

A Panel Discussion will follow. An official ArtSpring Cape Cod and Artweek Boston event.

PANEL: 

Francie Randolph from Sustainable CAPE
Sustainable CAPE’s mission is to celebrate local food while teaching about the health of our bodies, community, and environment. They demonstrate the direct link between local food, sustainable health and wellness, and the importance of preserving the fragile land and water resources that directly enable our local harvest. Our goal is to educate, empowering individuals to become agents of change – thereby creating a decidedly more delicious, healthy and sustainable world.

Francie Randolph is an award-winning artist whose mixed-media work has been exhibited internationally. After living in Papua New Guinea and Australia, she was invited to teach in Harvard’s Visual & Environmental Studies Department, winning 7 Certificate of Distinction in Teaching Awards. She holds a degree in V.E.S. and a Masters in Art & Technology, both from Harvard. After co-founding the Truro Agricultural Fair with two farming friends in 2009, Francie created the non-profit Sustainable CAPE. The creative mission-driven work enables her to combine her passions for art, food, health, the environment and education. Francie lives and works surrounded by gardens on a small farm in Truro with her husband, two children, one cat, several sheep, a dozen hens and countless honeybees.

Rebecca Yavner from Buy Fresh Buy Local Cape Cod
Their mission is simple: to connect people on the Cape with locally grown farm and sea products.
They provide our community with:
1) Public information and education about where to find locally grown products, and why it’s a great idea to do so.
2) Collective promotion of our Partners who have made a commitment to support land and sea farms and ocean harvesters in Barnstable County.

Dianne Langeland, Edible Cape Cod 
After spending more years than she’d like to acknowledge as a marketing professional in corporate America, and having flown enough miles to garner 100,000-mile frequent flyer status, DIANNE LANGELAND is thrilled to be grounded on Cape Cod. Since launching Edible Cape Cod with her husband Doug in May 2004, Dianne has enjoyed getting to know the local farmers, fishermen, gardeners, food artisans, and chefs. She’s become an inspired green thumb, expanding the kitchen garden each season and someday hopes to yield enough produce to put up some preserved foods to enjoy in winter. While Dianne is happy to relinquish the stove to Doug for the preparation of the main course, she enjoys baking special desserts for a crowd.

James Barnes, Capeabilities Farm
Cape Abilities Farm operates to provide skills training and create jobs for the people they serve, increase awareness of their mission, and to act as a hub in the community to promote local sustainable farming. They provide fresh, healthy produce (including their very popular tomatoes and gorgeous flowers and planters!) to the community through their farm stand, restaurants, local food pantries, and schools.
