Watch our latest video: Small-Scale Farmers Cool the Planet

video screen shot!

We’ve been hard at work here at Movement Media and we’ve been so busy that we skipped our April newsletter! I’m thrilled to finally share our latest video, produced in collaboration with Ryan Zinn and Gather Films for the Fair World Project. Small-Scale Farmers Cool the Planet is a new 17-minute documentary that highlights the role of industrial agriculture in climate change while expounding on how small farmers are combating the climate crisis through regenerative organic agriculture.

Fair World Project political director Ryan Zinn explores both the devastating effects and the causes of climate change while detailing the benefits of small-scale farming practices for sequestering carbon and reversing climate change. The video skillfully combines conversations with food sovereignty activists, experts, and luminaries such as Dr. Vandana Shiva, Coach Mark Smallwood of the Rodale Institute, and Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Association, with footage of small-scale farmers at work around the world and easy to follow animations explaining both the negative effects of industrial agriculture and the benefits of organic agriculture.

Click here to watch the video and take action to support small-scale farmers. 

This project was a labor of love and an absolute joy to work on. I hope you’ll take the time to watch it! 

Onwards and upwards,

Ryan Fletcher

On our Minds

RyanRyan: Please watch Small-Scale Farmers Cool the Planet!  
LaurenLauren: Spring heralds morel gathering season in Appalachia! I’m off to the woods to find a mushroom feast. Check out this article on how mushrooms can curb climate change--among other phenomenal new discoveries of the potential uses for mycelium--and see what Paul Stamets has to share about ‘nature’s internet.’
Jazmin Jazmín: Baltimore has been on my mind these last few weeks. Alongside an unsurprising flood of misinformation, I’ve appreciated seeing a flurry of solid analysis and on the ground independent coverage of the uprising in our neighbor city. This young man, for example, extemporized powerfully and succinctly to a cell phone camera. These voices need to be heard.
TomTom: After hearing the devastating news that my favorite bar in Silver Spring had burned down last month, I am happy to hear that they are back up and running! Quarry House Tavern will temporarily take over the recently closed Piratz Tavern right across the street from its old location. The new digs sport a larger space and an outdoor patio area which Quarry House plans to use for a new weekend brunch! I can't wait for the old location to come back to life, but for now, I am relieved to see the Quarry House back up and running.

MichelleMichelle: A win for elephants! Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey will no longer include these animals in its three touring circuses. It’s the best news I’ve read all month.
