"Gaining Ground" In The Farming Business
Working a farm is a very different business from 100 years ago.
Farms are bigger and numbers of farmers smaller, due in large part to mechanization. And in this age of local food and farm-to-fork events, more people seem to be paying attention to what happens on farms.
The documentary film "Gaining Ground" explores some recent trends, with a focus on farming in inner-city California and rural Oregon. The film visits Ashland on Tuesday (October 25). Filmmakers Barbara Bernstein and Elaine Velazquez tell us about their project.
