The final film in a three-part series, Harvest of Pride: Seeds of Hope focuses on the unexpected opportunities for Latino immigrant entrepreneurs. Putting aside the negative hot button topics, there is a community of families and individuals trying to be productive, innovative and part of a new community.
Using food as a blueprint, Huerto de la Familia recently launched a micro-enterprise program to provide training and one-on-one business counseling for families interested in creating businesses related to food and agriculture.
Harvest of Pride: Seeds of Hope is about creating opportunities for families to achieve stability and a good quality of life. But in addition to making an impact economically, there is is an emphasis on the desire to promote community consciousness-raising through organic and environmentally responsible food-based businesses. And throughout it all, families are finding themselves with greater opportunities to make money and become a part of the ever-evolving local food culture and community.
