COMING TO GROUND chronicles the struggles of Kentucky farmers, government officials, and policy makers as they move away from dependency on the global tobacco and petroleum economies to a more sustainable and sane agricultural economy.
Kentucky’s farming and food culture has undergone a sea change. Although small farms and farmers continue to disappear, Kentucky ranks #2nd in the U.S. for the number of small family farms. Over the last decade there has been an explosion of crop diversity, environmental innovation, sustainable and organic farms, along with sharp growth in farmer’s markets, regional infra-structure and agricultural enterprise.
A film of high interest for local small-land family farmers and conventional family farmers both, the producers/film makers will be attending this screening.
This month’s free film offering will be held at Forest Grove Grange 1917 “B” Street
