Island on the Edge

Food security affects everyone. This film looks at the history of food production on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands and asks the question 'what would happen if the islands were suddenly cut off from the rest of the world?'. It chronicles the efforts of several crusaders who grow crops, raise animals and craft artisan food products in the face of growing competition from imports and rising costs. Imagine a world in which eating and growing food is accessible to all. It encourages people to get involved and support the local food movement.
