Launched by the West Virginia Food & Farm Coalition in January 2012, the "Fresh Ideas In Action" Series highlights important issues, successful projects and inspiring entrepreneurs within West Virginia's local food system. Each 6-minute audio-visual "snapshot" is a unique story, told by the people who've lived it, about a model or idea that is successfully getting more local food from producer to consumer, or promises to do so.
