When you buy fresh vegetables or meat, what do you look for? What’s more important, that your food is organic or to know who and where it comes from? Local, organic or neither?
In the short movie, Local vs. Organic, The Lexicon of Sustainability examines the issues around local and organic food – introducing consumers to key terms and principles that can help them make more informed decisions about the food they eat, and to be more responsible and sustainably-conscious consumers.
Two farmers, Edwin Marty of Alabama’s Jones Valley Urban Farm and Jay Martin of Provident Organic Farms in Bivalve, Maryland weigh in on local vs. organic and why a piece of paper may not insure you’re getting the best food available.
The Lexicon of Sustainability’s Know Your Food is a series of short films that explains the real cost of cheap food, explores concepts like GMO and organic, and looks at solutions to food waste and seafood fraud. The Know Your Food series aims to empower consumers to take action in fixing the food system.
