Project shows life of farmworkers, ideas for change

As more people consider how and where their food is grown, farms are more in the spotlight. The California Institute for Rural Studies and photographer/writer Rick Nahmias have created an online documentary about farmworkers, growers and advocates for change in U.S. agriculture.

“Fair Food: Field to Table” includes photographs, music, graphics and text in three parts. It aims to look at the problems and some innovative solutions.

Nahmias, the creative director of the project, also is the founder of Food Forward, an organization that harvests fruit trees around Los Angeles that otherwise would be ignored and donates the food to food banks. Read more about it here.
