docnow 2017 / 60 Seasons

Artist Statement

The current state of food production in the Western world is leading to the devastation of our environment. Industrial farms are responsible for the depletion of natural resources and the reduction of biodiversity, which is affecting the sustainability of our planet. 60 Seasons aims to grow the dialogue around healthy and sustainable means of food production by depicting the efforts of two small groups within Northumberland County, Ontario. Their aim is to bring sustainable farming methods to their community, while expanding the discourse around environmentally sound food production and providing healthy food choices to those in need.
