Grow Your Own
There’s a new breed of young farmers heeding the call of the land in "Grow!" one of the independent films featured in the Do Something Reel Digital Film Festival.
“Grow!” follows a new generation of talented, educated young people who are leaving the city and the competitive career track to return to our country’s agrarian roots. Their stories reveal a very personal dedication to things that grow.
It was the same deep, soul-stirring call of the land that brought our founders, Drew & Myra Goodman, to their first little farm — proof that even humble beginnings can generate a powerful impact.
We sponsored the 2012 Do Something Reel Film Festival (brought to you by Whole Foods Markets) to help support independent films about food, environmental issues and everyday people with a vision of making the world better. All year long, you can watch the trailers for free or rent the films online — all proceeds go toward the American Film Institute’s Silverdocs grant program supporting filmmakers in the green genre.
