Food Forward – proposed TV show to explore alternatives to our current industrial food system

We explore new themes like school lunch reform, aquaponics and urban gardening

Food Forward explores alternatives to our current industrial food system through the lives and passions of a vanguard of innovators; educators, scientists, farmers and chefs across America–food rebels who are fundamentally changing the way we eat.

We shot this self-funded pilot episode trailer on Biodynamics in the summer of 2009 at Cynthia Sandberg’s Love Apple Farm in Ben Lomond, CA.

Now, Food Forward is reaching out to our extended networks, seeking to raise $5,000 by March 30, 2010 to help finish our show trailer – a powerful and polished overview of the entire series. This next strategic milestone will hopefully secure a green light from public television and a firm commitment from our sponsors to underwrite the full pilot episode and bring Food Forward to a national audience. The money will be used to fund additional production where we explore new themes like school lunch reform, aquaponics and urban gardening. We want to produce a series trailer that will really sell this project and help to bring on large sponsors who believe in our vision and want to make this show a reality.
