Are you interested in learning more about the sustainable production of local food directly from local farmers? More films have been released in the Depth of Field films series!

Depth of Field: Films About Farming is a series of 40 short documentaries produced and presented by the National Farmers Union and March Forth Creative.

The unscripted films showcase Canadian farmers and farm workers, and their sustainable farming practices on and off the land — such as rotational grazing, seed saving, building healthy soils, and working for social justice.

One of the recently-released Ontario films features Black Sheep Farm, an agroecological farm run by Brenda Hsueh and Skyler Radojkovic, who raise sheep on pasture, using intensive managed grazing to maximize the soil building effects of ruminants, while producing meat and fibre from grass and sunlight.

There are also a number of community screenings coming up that we encourage you to check out! In Ontario specifically, there is a screening in Stratford on March 23rdKingston on March 24th, and in Scarborough on March 26th!

If you’re interested in organizing your own screening, you can use the free Community Screening Guide.

Don’t miss the chance to meet the hardworking farmers, farm workers, producers and land stewards who grow food in Canada. The series is a great educational resource that should be shared far and wide!
