The Chris de Waal talks on fighting for community in an individualistic world discusses his personal experience starting a family farm and selling meat directly to the public. In 2009, the new farmer moved from southern Alberta, Canada to Canning, Nova Scotia with his family to establish their farming operation and butcher shop.
Previously the speaker had no knowledge on farming and began his new career without any experience. Moving beyond the local food movement, the butcher believes in a 'local mindset.'

He believes when people stop focusing on 'I' we can change the world and address important issues together.
