While small-scale farming is dying out as a profession, some first-generation farmers are bucking the trend by going back to their roots. Photographer Eva Verbeeck and filmmaker Spencer MacDonald spent three weeks among some young organic farmers of the Pacific Northwest and learned what drew them out of the cities to a life of toil in the fields. The result is a breathtaking short film called “Age of the Farmer.”

Farming, whether rural or urban, is essential to providing healthy food to people. The Food Project in Boston transforms abandoned urban lots into verdant, productive farms that make nutritious fresh produce available in former food deserts. You can help The Food Project create more urban farmland to serve those in need in Boston.
