Good News

We're happy to report that $1000.00 dollars was raised at The Peachtree Road Farmers Market screening on June 11th.

Half of the funds went to the Farmers Market for annual operating costs. We donated $500 to the Emergency Farmers Fund which will provide immediate assistance to local farmers in crisis after natural disaster strikes. We're off to a good start!

We'll be announcing some fun screening events for July soon. Check back for details.

We can't post an outtake this week so we thought we would share a quote.

Thanks to Peachtree Road Farmers Market, Yeah! Burger, Whole Foods Market and everyone who came out to see to GROW! today.


The funny thing is, if the Peachtree Road Farmers Market existed 6 years ago, we might not have ever been inspired to make GROW!.

At screenings people often ask why we made this movie... The short answer is, we like to eat and we like to eat food that is good, clean, fair and fresh, purchased directly from the people who grow it.

When we moved to Atlanta from California in 2005, there weren't a lot of Farmers Markets. We started talking to the farmers and were surprised to discover that there just wasn't a lot of demand for locally grown and organic food. We decided to help by photographing the farmers, their farms and the food they grow. We hoped to help put a face on farming and make farmers into rock stars. Eventually, we decided to make a film about them.

We have watched this movement grow; there are now more farmers markets and more people growing our food. Its a great partnership, but its one that needs to be nurtured.
