Crowdfunding through resources like Kickstarter have become increasingly popular for projects that include a focus on sustainability. This one that launched today, caught our attention since it has the ability to increase sustainability as well as educate American students in the key areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
If you have a project that you would like us share with our readers please let us know: Contact Us.

Here are some highlights on the Future Food Film project:
"Our documentary film is a quest to shed light on a new generation of farming and a new generation of farmers. We see the need for cost-effective sustainable food production and the need to advance Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education for American students. While students are learning and challenging the agriculture-industrial complex, they will also have the ability to eat the superfood “fruits” of their efforts. We are not feeding students, but we are giving them the tools to feed their minds and bodies and help change the food supply paradigm."
The project includes these sections: Film > Food > Tech > Team > and Support Info
"We’ve been eating too much processed food from corporations over the past half century. Today, the technology is available for healthy, local production. A new generation of student farmers is bringing fresh perspective to develop chemical and pesticide free, affordable, and sustainable food practices. Our film takes you on a journey across America from elementary schools into the laboratories of universities. See how students of all ages are testing the latest technology to push the envelope, experiment, measure results, challenge each other, and run cost-benefit analyses for indoor farming. The results will astonish and inspire you."
Our GREENandSAVE team has written in the past about the advantages of U.S. manufacturing for clean technology, and the LED lighting manufacturer for this project provides Buy American Act (BAA) Compliant LED Lighting for the LED Grow Lights.
