A comprehensive resource for teaching about locally grown foods. The program is an informative look into sustainable and local foods through the stories of professional chefs-turned-farmers, while the teacher’s guide includes a variety of practical resources that dive deeper into the subject of local, sustainable, and organic foods. The program taps into the current trend of eating locally grown foods without the use of chemical pesticides or hormones. The basics of sustainable farming are explored through the eyes of three highly trained chefs who leave big city jobs to carve out a place to grow fresh, healthy ingredients for their gourmet dishes. Discover the differences and similarities between sustainable and organic farming, a brief history of American farms, how the chefs create and market their farm, and how the fresh food travels from farm to table. The teacher’s guide includes discussion starters, activities, and additional resources. Teaching materials online. Closed captioned. DVD. 20 minutes. Copyright 2011.
