Turning a Green Leaf

The McMillin family of Halifax is trying to make a difference on the planet.
When it comes to food, the family wants to go green. First they need to discover
their carbon footprint. Then the changes begin.

They try to shift from buying their food at the supermarket to shopping at the
Halifax Farmer's Market. Along the way they get up close and personal with
the farmers who actually supply their food.
