TEDxGrandValley - Katie Brandt - Join the Farming Revolution

Katie Brandt grows over 100 vegetable varieties on just 7 acres of rich soils at Groundswell Community Farm in Zeeland, MI. This organic farm feeds 120 Community Supported Agriculture members and their families, investing everyone in the risks and rewards of tomatoes & kale, floods & droughts, cooking & weeding. Members volunteer on the farm and pay for their food months before ever getting a bite to eat. That kind of patience may offer a key to thinking more clearly about our environment and economy. Katie studied anthropology at the University of Michigan and is continuing her studies at GVSU, pursuing a Masters in Biology.http://www.tedxgrandvalley.comAbout TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
