Fertile Ground

Parts of Jackson, Miss. are unhealthy “food deserts,” but activists are working for change

Fertile Ground takes a look at the extensive impact that industrial food systems currently have on Americans. The film follows advocates in Jackson, Mississippi who are using localized efforts to address food insecurity in under-served communities, shining a light on the potential for a healthier future through efforts to convert to communal, localized food systems.
