In 1999, PFI member Helen Gunderson
interviewed members of Audubon County Family Farms for the soundtrack of a video
about the importance of local food systems. Helen has edited the comments
into four segments with the interviewees (David Toussain, Charles Carpenter, Vic
Madsen, and Mari Schultes) describing the changing attitudes toward farming and
food; why they got involved in their current approaches to farming; the
specialty items they produce; and the benefits of direct marketing. The
full video will be available later this year through Helen. Helen is a
photographer and videographer whose business name is Gunder-friend Productions.
Thanks to Helen for making the tapes available.
