Groundswell’s action research explores the rise of the fresh food movement and involves making short videos about untold stories from the field.
Did you know that the City of Chicago’s farmers markets began to accept food stamps (a.k.a. the LINK card) only this summer? We were shocked that it has taken so long and that only a few markets can participate in this pilot program. Help us spread the word just by sending this video link to others. Lights! Camera! ACTION RESEARCH!
“The video is a smash hit!”, said Connie Spreen of Experimental Station. Spreen’s group developed the pilot program and uses this new video to raise awareness.
USDA director of public affairs Alan Shannon emails the video to raise awareness about the program. “I have been sending it everywhere since seeing it for the first time at our Good Greens meeting. Wonderful work! I’m just preparing a message with a link to it which will go to our entire Good Greens mailing list.”
