            Farm 2 Fork Country of Production: USA Year Completed: 2009 Director(s):Brent Day Short Synopsis (attach additional pages): Students and faculty at Augustana College in Rock Island Illinois have teamed up with local and regional farmers to bring fresh, organic produce and hormone-free meats to their dining halls. Beyond this, the partnership has evolved into one of the most eco-friendly co-operations between an educational institution and its food supply. Nothing goes to waste as cooking oil is converted to biodiesel for farm equipment, food scraps and biodegradable utensils and containers are composted for fertilizer, and biodiesel byproducts are turned into soap. Student volunteers are involved and educated in the process that effectively sustains their health, land, local economy, and community. The benefits and the scope of this sustainable project continue to increase. Augustana College and its partners have set an example for institutions like schools, hospitals, and corporations to step up to the plate and change the way they feed their students, patients, employees, and patrons. In doing so they will lay the groundwork for a sustainable future. Contact Person: Brent Day Phone: 630 878 9245 Email: brday10@gmail.com

                      “THE ORGANIC OPPORTUNITY/Local Organic Food as Economic Development in Woodbury County, Iowa” tells the story of the first county in the US to promote local organic agriculture as economic development. In 2005, Woodbury County, Iowa became the first county in the nation to offer tax rebates to farmers who transition to organic agriculture. In 2006, the county became the first in the nation to mandate the purchase of locally grown organic food by county institutions. And now the county is offering access to farm land and housing to new farmers who relocate there to farm organically. Home to the Floyd Boulevard Local Foods Market in Sioux City – the first farmers market to exclusively sell “healthy, humane, homegrown” food – Sioux City and Woodbury County are experiencing an economic renaissance built around the promotion of small organic family farms. “The Organic Opportunity” looks at these developments in depth, offering anyone interested in economic development and healthy food a model for change in their communities. The film is produced by The Center for Economic Security. Award winning writer-director, Chris Bedford, is the film maker. DVDs are available through Local Harvest
