Using the synergistic power of photography and storytelling, Dan and Melinda Hemmelgarn’s Food, Art, Revolution, Media (FARM) project blends compelling photographs with relevant stories from rural America to influence public opinion and drive public policy to support a more just and sustainable food system.

The FARM project contrasts the pervasive media campaigns of powerful industrial agribusiness with rural realities. With the looming 2012 Farm Bill, their unique application of media literacy education can help raise national awareness, fuel community engagement and promote “food citizenship”.
