Orlan Mays introduces his project with the Attucks Community Farm by talking about Genetic Modification of seeds. 85% of all corn growing here is genetically modified.
91% of soybeans are genetically modified. That, he says, is why events like the seed swap are so important, because this is where people are ensuring the existence of the last 15% of corn, or 9% of soybeans, and other kinds of open pollinated seed.

"Roadside Culture Stands are artist-designed and built mobile farm stands that will be used to display and sell fresh local produce as well as the work of local artists. “The Roadside Culture Stand tangibly unites art and farming,” said Donna Neuwirth of Wormfarm, “reminding us that culture surrounds our food and food imbues our culture.”

At the heart of our national debate over climate change and the crucial transition toward clean energy, is the Obama administration’s controversial pursuit of “clean coal.” Biggers exposes the fallacy that lies at the heart of this policy and shatters the Big Coal marketing myth that Illinois represents the “Saudi Arabia of coal.” Reckoning at Eagle Creek is ultimately an exposé of “historicide,” one that traces coal’s harrowing legacy through the great American family saga of sacrifice and resiliency and the extraordinary process of recovering our nation’s memory. Coal will never be called clean or cheap again.
