The Source Project, a self-funded venture, has led Jason Taylor on a journey around the world to
meet some of the most progressive and enlightened farmers: Indigenous farmers living with and respecting the land. These farmers–the real farmers of the world–are the source of all knowledge–knowledge of seeds, knowledge of soil, knowledge of the seasons, knowledge of our interdependence and reverence for other species, knowledge of the cyclical loop in which all comes from and returns to the earth. It is their knowledge The Source Project preserves and showcases so that we can all reconnect with the source of our food.
