Interviews from the Road: Climate Summer’s Look at Farmers Markets

Videos captured by Jayson Castillo, Video Coordinator, Team RICONN

Along the way, farmers markets have been one of Team RICONN’s most successfull venues for interacting with people, publicizing Climate Summer’s mission, and raising awareness about the many implications of climate change. Following are a few clips from interviews we had with different vendors we have met.

Meet Adam, a farmer who sells his crops to the Little City Growers Cooperative in Providence, RI. We met him at Providence’s Armory Farmers Market one Thursday afternoon and got to talking about his farming, biking, and ideas for the future!

Meet Becky, the pastry chef at The Kitchen’s kitchen café in Hartford, CT. The Kitchen is a part of the Billings Forge Community Works, a non-profit organization dedicated to building community and improving life in the Frog Hollow neighborhood of CT.

This last clip is a little bit of an outtake of a conversation we had with Valeria, a local small-business owner in Providence who started her own pudding pops bicycle cart. She was really great and I got this little bit on camera – some good-hearted criticism of Solar.
