ABOUT THE FILM:
GAINING GROUND presents the personal stories of farmers and activists confronting the challenges of feeding their local communities sustainably grown food. The documentary interweaves experiences of Urban Tilth’s farmer-activists transforming corners of Richmond, California’s inner city food desert into vibrant community gardens; Sun Gold Farm, a small family farm in rural Oregon converting from commodity dairy to sustainably grown produce and Stalford Seed Farms in the Willamette Valley transitioning from growing grass seed to organic grains.
GAINING GROUND was an official selection of the 2016 San Luis Obispo Film Festival and of the 2016 Chicago International Film Festival and is now being shown at many local venues throughout the country.
