Synopsis: Over the past 3 years, Hardwick, Vermont, a typical hardscrabble farming community of 3,000 residents, has jump-started its economy and redefined its self-image through a local, self-sustaining food system unlike anything else in America. Even as the recent financial downturn threatens to cripple small businesses and privately owned farms, a stunning number of food-based businesses have grown in the region - building on a long tradition of commitment to small local farms and neighbours helping one another through tough times. The mostly young entrepreneurs have built on this network of community support; they meet regularly to share advice, equipment, and business plans, and to loan each other capital. Hardwick is fast becoming a model for other communities to replicate its success. The captivating story of a small town's struggle to develop and sustain a local food system, "The Town that Food Saved" is narrative non fiction at its best: full of colourful characters and grounded in an idea that will revolutionize the way we eat.
