Summary

From Jamie Oliver to Michelle Obama to Jack Johnson, celebrities and other leaders are spreading the message nationally about the importance of healthy food for a healthy environment. How do we spread these messages at a local level? Videos can be an extremely effective way for Nurture and other non-profits to spread their messages about wellness, food, nutrition and the environment. Help us by creating a visual documentary that will be compelling and fun.

Description

Students will engage with Nurture programming and community events as well as other work happening in the community around wellness issues today. Students will conduct interviews, do background research and create a “storyboard” for their end-product. Students will shoot footage and photographs and put it all together in a story via current video software.

This Nurture WOW project offers much flexibility for your students in developing a theme for this video documentary. Nurture’s core mission centers around food, nutrition, cooking, wellness, and sustainability (the environment). Since there are many non-profits in the Wood River Valley that service these aspects, Nurture is proud to provide a support role to these other organizations. Our core competency is to bring food, cooking and gardening education to classrooms. We’d like students to spread the word via this documentary about the need for this type of education and also involve other local players involved in this movement around sustainable food.
