Craig King was elephant magazine’s first food columnist, along with Peggy Markel, and has been a longtime friend. But I’m sorry to admit that I’ve lost track of him over the last few years…he’s been busy with creating Here We Grow – a non-profit enterprise dedicated to democratizing access to organic and healthy foods.

elephantjournal.com is proud to be co-sponsor, along with Chef Ann Cooper and BVSD School Food Project, a screening of

HERE WE GROW

a new movie via Craig King that’s for sale in Whole Foods around the nation, and debuts at the Boulder Theater at 6.30pm this Tuesday November 17 and will be followed by a Panel Discussion titled “How to Raise Healthy Kids”.

The film, ‘Here We Grow’, was born of one man’s desire to go beyond the limitations of the retail food industry and to help change the way people think about food and wellness. Craig King, a natural food chef and entrepreneur is the brains behind the documentary. The film explores the state of our food supply and seeks to educate people toward living healthier, more wholesome lives through socially responsible food choices. The film intends to raise national awareness through inspiring interviews and stories that capture the passion and personal investment of a diverse group of individuals.

Here We Grow, through partnerships with natural food manufacturers, local farmers, community organizations and private citizens is creating pragmatic, impactful and generative solutions to bring organic and healthy food to underserved communities.

Love this one, too, via Whole Foods.

“We are excited to let you know that the just released Here We Grow documentary directed by Craig King is now exclusively available in our stores. In this 65-minute film, Craig, a natural foods chef and entrepreneur, explores the current state of our food supply and seeks to educate people about living healthier, more wholesome lives through socially responsible food choices. The film intends to raise national awareness through inspiring interviews and stories that capture the passion and personal investment of a diverse group of individuals. The documentary also educates everyone on the pandemic expansion of dangerous chemicals that were introduced into food seeds and crop soils at an alarming rate over the last 40 years.”
