This is a short film by Alex Suber and Julian Kraus-Polk. The film provides a glimpse of the foodscape in the Colorado Springs area. We highlight some of the local farmers who provide food to Colorado College students, including Larga Vista Farm, and the Colorado College student farm. We hope to foster growth of our local food shed by inspiring more connectivity between the community of Colorado Springs and our local food purveyors.
Mike Callicrate, owner of Ranch Foods Direct (a local meat provider on the Front Range), and Randy Kruse, General Manager of Bon Appétit catering at Colorado College speak about food sourcing at Colorado College. They also discuss how the the food system in Colorado Springs is shifting to foster more local and sustainable agriculture.
