What you actions and behaviors can you target to reduce your carbon footprint? 

Carbon is the basis of all life on Earth and that puts it at the center of all energy on Earth as well. The impact of human’s actions in terms of energy production (burning of fuels—transportation, utilities like electric power plants, etc.) can be calculated individually with several carbon footprint calculator tools.

Take a look at these tools and see where you measure up with your carbon footprint on the Earth.

Land & Freedom: Talking Food Systems
Visiting local gardens, farmers markets, and other fresh food projects in San Diego's diverse urban neighborhoods, Land & Freedom speaks with residents that are taking advantage of the city's reformed urban agriculture ordinances. Residents are finding alternatives to a food system that has historically distressed low income communities. Residents are eating healthier with produce they've grown themselves, using community gardens like they would use parks, and displaying respect for the neighborhoods they live in. Still, many people continue to struggle with the lack of affordable fresh produce readily available within neighborhoods and other resources to improve their lives.

About filmmaker:
Brian Myers, a video producer with the Media Arts Center San Diego, works with under-served communities to document the voice of local community members for the Speak City Heights multimedia collaborative. As a media justice activist he works on a variety of independent media projects for community groups, such as May Day Workers Film Festival, and other organizations focused on social justice.
