A Creative Approach to Local Food advocacy : Lexicon of Sustainability

Check out the short films from the Lexicon of Sustainability about our food system

The importance of Storytelling cannot be underplayed.  Traditionally Big Ag have had the upper-hand in the attempt to capture people’s imaginations with their deep pockets.

 

The tide is turning. The cost to craft & create quality media is leveling the playing field, and the rise of the Social Web is making us more inquisitive about where our food comes from, who is behind it, and easier to communicate what we find.

 

Awhile ago we highlighted a few of our favourite Creative capturings of the local food movement which included the very awesome Lexicon of Sustainability’s photo series which is available to exhibit as an art show.  What we didn’t know at the time is they were also making a series of fantastic videos highlighting the truth behind Big Ag’s marketing.  Take a look at the first 3 videos of this series which is available on PBS’ Youtube Channel.

 

 

Once again, make sure you head over to Lexicon of Sustainability to find more about the food that we eat, and how it is produced.

Gearing up for 2012

Cue fireworks, bubbles, slapping of backs, smiles & shouts of ‘cheers’.

It’s that time again, as the hours tick onward to midnight here in Aotearoa/New Zealand, our minds turn to what beckons for us in 2012.  Frankly, the Bucky Box team is excited, and whilst we’re taking a break today & tomorrow – we’re itching to get back to our work as soon as possible.

So, here’s wishing you all a very Happy New Year from Aotearoa –  Ngā mihi o te Tau Hou ki a koutou katoa

We’ll catch you on the flip side, where local food will continue to hail the return to mainstream organic farming for a people & planet friendly food system.  We can’t wait.
