A documentary about communities taking the next step in providing food focused on Oamaru yesterday.
Food enthusiast Robina McCurdy was at the Waitaki Community Gardens, filming the local initiative.
"I'm really inspired about what other people are doing," she said.
"These gardens are absolutely worth documenting."
Ms McCurdy said she wanted to put communities on the map.
She said the local community gardens are "utterly beautiful".
Ms McCurdy, along with Ross Inness-Mcleash, her cameraman, were in Oamaru as part of their eight-month tour of the country that involves talks, workshops and film documentation of local initiatives.
Last night she presented Inspiring Local Food Resilience at Aoraki Polytechnic, about successful local food models around the world from production through distribution.
Ms McCurdy has taught and applied community-building methods with households, neighbourhoods, schools, farms, and bio-regions in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, Brazil and the US.
She is founder/trustee of the Institute for Earthcare Education Aotearoa.
