Episode 111: The Middle Way

By now you are probably familiar with the food scandals that have been running rampant in China.  In the aftermath of any such situation, new movements are born.  Ms Yang is part of an effort to bring healthy and organic food to Kunming, a city in the Yunnan Province of China.  But for her it goes beyond healthy.  After graduating from University and working in business, she found a way to go back to the farm and fight for healthy and organic food. This inspiring story shares a hopeful future for food in China.  Special Thanks to Intrepid Travel.

    I could listen to her speak all day – so soft spoken.

      I know. She was so sweet. We’ve been trying to send her the video, but its very difficult to access Vimeo/Youtube from inside China.

        If I can get your permit, I can help you to upload this on YouKu, A Chinese video sharing website.

    I debated whether or not I should read your blog post before watching this. I’m glad I did read it first, because I appreciated your work even more.

    Pulling focus while filming by yourself is a pain. Great work, Mirra.

      It’s in the Jinding Loft 1919 compound on Jindingshan Bei Lu, a road on the north side of the western end of Xuefu Lu. In zone B. Great food and great people.

    With all of this anti-GMO sentiment going around, (it’s even overtaken my small island home of Molokai, Hawaii), it was refreshing to find a video on responsible farming and organic food. I think this film takes asubject that can be so heated and often times turned into a negative thing, and helps us to see the happy and healthy alternatives that are out there. Great compilation and very inspiring!
