One of our very special connections is with the Center for a Sustainable Future at Indiana University South Bend and its students. We were fellows of the Center last year, and really appreciate the many innovative ideas CSF has brought to the IUSB campus and the local community. CSF also sponsors a minor in sustainability studies, and they have been great champions of our work. Last December, when sustainability studies minor Maggie Kent approached us about creating a short film to complete a final project requirement for one of her sustainability studies courses, we jumped at the chance to work with her. What a creative option and what an out-of-the-box opportunity to learn and work with her sustainability studies course material! We were very pleased to have Maggie and cinematographer Justin Howell work onsite for with us for a day to create a film featuring our venture.
Interested in learning more about the story of Green Bridge Growers and our social mission? Maggie and Justin's film is linked here, and it's a wonderful way to share our impact and model. They later entered their film to the Real Food Media Contest, which is coordinated by food justice advocate Anna Lappe. And great news - we recently learned that their film about Green Bridge Growers is featured by the Real Food Media Contest in their media library. What a great testimony to the beautiful work done by Maggie and Justin to share the mission and vision of our venture! We are very grateful to the two of them for creatively sharing our story and to the Real Food Media Project for highlighting Maggie and Justin's film.

Thanks Maggie and Justin, for your wonderful film -- and thanks to the Center for a Sustainable Future at IU-South Bend for the many ways you make our community greener and more sustainable.
