What do you get when you cross an innovative, wide-ranging Advanced Placement Government class assignment, with a media-savvy, motivated student, who has a strong interest in sustainable agriculture and eating well?
You get this:
That’s Jonathan Blansfield’s video. In 6 minutes, he covers a lot. Lisa Cochran, director of the Westport Farmers’ Market, discusses obesity, processed foods and the importance of “eating local.”
Several Farmers’ Market vendors explain what they do, why — and the economics of it.
Chances are, Jonathan’s YouTube video won’t go viral.
But it’s a lot more interesting — and important — than any dancing cat.
