Gaining Ground: The Making of the documentary
Elaine Velazquez and Barbara Bernstein will be in the Jakob Yungen House to discuss their awardwinning documentary, Gaining Ground, which tells the story of farmers making extraordinary changes in their farming practices in order to feed their local communities sustainably grown produce and grains.

A screening of the trailer of the movie, along with an open discussion with the two filmmakers is planned.
GAINING GROUND is a feature-length documentary film by Elaine Velazquez and Barbara Bernstein that tells the stories of farmers making extraordinary changes in their farming practices so they can feed their local communities sustainably grown produce and grains. From farms in Oregon’s fertile Willamette Valley to underserved communities of color in Richmond, California, GAINING GROUND reveals the tenacity and courage of these diverse urban and rural farmers, committed to serving and empowering their communities.
