When it comes to your food, nature always has the last word. Most pro-organic documentaries make their point by taking stabs at the cruelty and other evils involved in the world of industrialized farming. In this short documentary portrait, Jesse Straight, owner of Whiffletree Farm, shows us a different approach. As he gestures to the beautiful landscapes that surround us he explains, "being a farmer is special because this is my office. You spend your day making animals happy...you get to do things that help the things around you thrive". The passion that Jesse exudes in this film will make you question every fast-food burger you've ever eaten, but for all the right reasons.

Watch the next episode about San Francisco becoming a zero waste city: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg3OA1s8-SI&list=UUJsSEDFFnMFvW9JWU6XUn0Q As urban populations continue to rise, innovators are looking beyond traditional farming as a way to feed everyone while having less impact on our land and water resources. Vertical farming is one solution that's been implemented around the world. Vertical farms produce crops in stacked layers, often in controlled environments such as those built by AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey. AeroFarms grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called "aeroponics," which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms' crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LE...

A video of a recent origin trip to visit coffee producers in Guatemala
The Guatemala Huehuetenango – Joya Grande is produced in La Democracia, in the Huehuetenango region. The plantations are at an altitude of 1370 to 1830 m above sea level, and the coffee is grown in partial shade. Harvested from December to April, the beans are fully washed and sun dried. This typical Guatemalan Arabica includes three varietals; Catuai, Caturra and Bourbon. The Guatemala Huehuetenango – Joya Grande can be drank as a single origin, and is sweet with a delicate acidity. In the cup it reveals an intriguing mix of blueberry, cranberry and mandarin, with nuances of hazelnut and cocoa. The delicate acidity persists in the sweet aftertaste tinged with orange blossom honey. www.sandalj.com
