Living Lands is an introduction to the new and innovative model of collaborative agriculture launched Nevada City, California. The film introduces viewers to a new framework for farming; one that is rooted in a network of community members, dedicated to educating the next generation of farmers, and committed to connecting youth to the sources of their food. In a world in which it is increasingly difficult to start and sustain healthy farms and food systems, Living Lands follows farmer activists in their efforts to grow food and create a new paradigm where relationships are valued, work is shared, and celebration is abundant.
