The Bradshaw-Knight Foundation in Madison, Wisconsin approved Groundswell’s proposal for a grant to support action research for a documentary and public engagement campaign focusing on the rise of the fresh food movement.
Urban agriculture visionaries such as Will Allen of Growing Power in Milwaukee and Ken Dunn of City Farm in Chicago are just two of the participants in this project. Groundswell is organizing public conversations about the hidden cost and health impacts of industrial agriculture. This new project presents the untold stories of ordinary people who are struggling to grow real food in vacant city lots, public school yards, ethnic communities and leading universities.
