We have a winner! homegrowndotorg 0 homegrowndotorg 9 years ago

Group Description

In a series of six (6) photos or fewer, show us:

How are you eating differently these days and how are you connecting to the sources of your food? For example: Are you growing some of your own food? What are you growing and how? Do you know your farmer? What does he/she look like?

Those photos will be judged on content, composition and creativity, but also on how you show us: how does knowing the sources of your food feel?
