Fresh Air Media's Andrew Campbell is on a mission to help urban populations learn more about where their food comes from and how it's produced. Campbell's passion project sees him hitting the road armed with a smartphone, microphone and drone, creating videos of different Ontario farms each week to share across social media. His "Dinner Starts Here" series takes viewers on an interactive journey through barns and onto fields, showcasing everything from robotic milking machines to greenhouse pepper operations. In an era where more Ontarians live in urban areas, Campbell is starting important conversations using the power of modern technology to discuss food production, animal welfare and environmental sustainability - and establishing trust from gate to plate.
