Across the U.S. there's a growing movement of educated young people leaving the cities to take up an agrarian life. Armed with college degrees, some are unable to find jobs in the current economic slump. Fed up with corporate America and its influence on a broken food system they aim to solve some of the current system's inequities by growing clean, fair food.
Mostly landless, they borrow, rent or manage farmland in order to fulfill their dreams of doing something meaningful with their lives.
Filmed on 12 farms throughout Georgia, GROW! takes a look at this new generation of sustainable and organic farmers through the eyes, hearts and minds of 20 idealistic, passionate and fiercely independent young growers.
