From the Lexicon of Sustainability:
In some parts of the U.S., a farm is worth more for its real estate than for what it grows and valuable food-producing land, which has been carefully tended for generations, is lost forever. Conservationist Bob Berner of the Marin Agricultural Land Trust explains how land trusts provide guidance and economic support to keep farms in production and provide communities with cultural continuity in an episode of Know Your Food.Watch the episode here. Know Your Food is a series of 24 short films that introduce consumers to key terms and principles that can help them make more informed decisions about the food they eat. New films appear each week. The Lexicon of Sustainability is a multi-platform project that educates, engages and activates people to pay closer attention to how they eat, what they buy and where their responsibility begins for creating a healthier and safer food system in America.
