GROUND OPERATIONS: BATTLEFIELDS TO FARMFIELDS (USA, 2012, 41 min.)

A generation of warriors is coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan and faces a daunting transition back to civilian life. They need a new mission. At the same time, half of our farmers are nearing retirement age while the government is calling for one million new farmers in the next 10 years. It's a match made in heaven. This film follows the stories of visionary vets who are creating a new life in organic farming and ranching. These vets have found their new purpose: to protect America’s food security. Directed by Dulanie Ellis. Produced by Dulanie Ellis and Raymond Singer.

Panel discussion with filmmaker Dulanie Ellis; Elizabeth Kucinich, Policy Director, the Center For Food
Safety; Ethne Clark, Editor, Organic Gardening magazine and Calvin Riggs, Farmer-Veteran, Bigg Riggs
Farm, follows screening.
