Synopsis

This short documentary follows Michael Albert, Marie-Eve Fradette and their 2 young daughters through a growing season on their farm in Wycliffe, BC.
Through the film, Michael and Marie-Eve describe their personal journeys, from their youth growing up around farms to their passion for food, and their desire to pass down their knowledge to their children. Michael talks about his transformation from being an artist/photographer in his past life to his current art – growing food, and what it means to him personally to be connected to his past.

While they know they may not be able to make a significant change in how society currently views food, they know they can provide that change in their own community, and it starts in their household.

Interviews with Chad Kile and Meredith Funston, two local food experts, provide insight into the reasons we need to build knowledge of our food systems to ensure a more food secure future for our local communities.
