Growing Concern (1 x 30)


The Maritimes were once home to scores of thriving rural communities that produced the majority of their own food. During the past few decades however, the level of food self- sufficiency has declined dramatically. But a new generation is giving cause for hope as they reconnect with the land and create fresh opportunities for young people living in urban environments to learn first-hand about growing their own food. These youth are gaining not only an appreciation of where food comes from but also the knowledge of how to build more sustainable food systems.

Growing Concern is a half hour documentary that travels to rural and urban farms in several communities across Nova Scotia to reveal how the next generation is making its mark and sowing the seeds for the future.
