GROW! Hero #1 Pilot Steve Seagraves


Owen and Steve, going over the flight plan
Making a self-financed film sometimes has its limitations, except for the kindness of strangers and friends. Pilot Steve Seagraves, a neighbor of Skip Glover, generously offered his 1946 Piper Cub and his services to help us get some aerial footage for GROW! We had a blast!
So we're adding a new category to the blog, Heroes, for people who help us get this movie made!

Wwoofers at Hope Grows

Bethany
Ben


World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms links volunteers with organic farmers. Its a great exchange - the farmers get some needed help and the Wwoofers get room and board and all the food and knowledge they can consume. Bethany and Ben are staying at Hope Grows for a couple of weeks and will eventually head back to Alabama to start their own farm. To find out more about Wwoofing..

They've got 500 chickens out there laying 300 eggs a day!
Moving day for the K-22 Poulet Rouge type broilers
Pork and Chop, the Berkshire pigs, get cooled off
We were embedded for a couple of days with Arianne McGinnis and Elliott McGann, the "Farm Czars" of Hope Grows, a pasture based livestock operation about an hour north of Savannah. We filmed, we ate, we laughed, we filmed, and then we ate some more. They're great people doing great stuff. Go to their blog to find out more freshfarming.blogspot.com/
