Ingather: The Stories of Chicago Chefs' Favorite Farmers and KICKSTARTER.COM!

Hello Friends-
The time has finally come-- after a long winter and spring of planning and fine-tuning-- I am launching my project:

Ingather: Stories of Chicago Chefs' Favorite Farmers

INGATHER is a photography and video website database that will tell the unique and behind the scenes stories of our local farms and farmers-- which are playing an increasingly prominent role in our food culture. I'm hittin' the road with some of my creative colleagues- and visiting Chicago chefs' favorite farmers. I will create a series of photographs and videos- and a website database that will convey each farmer's unique story and bring more life and meaning to the term "Farm to Table."

I am fundraising for 30 days on I hope that you'll join me on this adventure!

Thanks! -
