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.

    This video is so beautiful! (Mirra, are you still filming?) Keep it up you guys, it’s inspiring!

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

  5. 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.

  6. Definitely left me teary eyed.

  7. if only there were more people in the world like her and her family, so aware and quietly hopeful. very sweet little episode. keep making great work guys.

      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!

    reminds me that it’s not as simple as ‘eat this food or avoid this one’ — t’s just as important to see where the food comes from & how it’s made…

  12. I made a point of asking my hosts to take me to this restaurant when I went to Kunming to run a workshop at a conference for cooperative leaders from the Asia and Pacific region run by the All China Federation of Supply & Marketing Cooperatives and the International Cooperative Alliance’s New Delhi office. The atmosphere in the restaurant was delightful, the food magnificent, the experience sublime. If you get a chance to go there I heartily recommend going. And of course it was only because of your wonderful video that I knew to go there.
