This video is the second chapter in the story of how tomatoes are produced (find the first chapter, The Industrial Tomato, here). The carbon “foodprint” of vegetables and fruits is complex, involving how the food is produced, how it reaches us, and what we do with it. In this two part video series on food production, viewers will consider different ways food is produced, transported and consumed and will evaluate how food they grow locally may have a smaller carbon footprint than food found in the grocery store.
