The community of Uig on the Isle of Lewis, part of the Outer Hebrides off the north west coast of Scotland, has been chosen as the preferred area to establish a St. Kilda visitor centre. The site chosen in Uig is near the village of Mangersta (Mangurstadh) with it's dramatic cliffs and open views onto the Atlantic Ocean.
Uig is visually spectacular with superb scenery, varied wildlife and is a remote location. The next stage is for the community to secure funding to build the centre. This video forms part of the community proposal towards that aim for this exciting project for visitors to the Western Isles and those with an interest in the remote archipelago of St. Kilda.

Because our food system is broken, more young people need to start considering organic and sustainable farming as a viable career choice. People with land, money and knowledge need to start enabling them. Communities need to support them.
GROW! provides a look at this new generation of sustainable farmers through the eyes, hearts and minds of 20 passionate, idealistic and fiercely independent young growers. In the film they speak of both the joys and the challenges involved in tending the land.
Filmed in Georgia, USA.
The filmmakers are the recipients of the Georgia Organics 'Barbara Petit Pollinator Of The Year Award 2012 for GROW! The award honors an individual or organization for outstanding community leadership in pollinating Georgia's sustainable farming and food movement.
