Short Video animation / illustration

Posted: Sep 2, 2022

Here is the list of important aspects of the project we would like to have highlighted in the 40-60 second illustrated animation: 

Key elements:

Location: now an empty parking lot = Future: one of the first closed-loop, zero waste, open-air farmers markets

indoor and outdoor learning spaces 

teaching kitchen

meeting spaces

edible gardens including a pollinator corridor for essential life-giving insects and birds

transportation hub with bike parking, ev stations and smart train

demo kitchen / cooking classes 

diversity at the market including producers and shoppers 

chefs shopping the market with chef carts / bulk purchasing 

Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design

Community gathering places to enjoy food, music, art

Hands on learning experiences: Chef's corner - live cooking demonstrations, and Harvest Talks - lectures and book signings

Fully electric with on-site solar panels that covers the farmers market 


Economic Impact and Environmental impact: (if there is a way to illustrate these things, if not, can be considered a copy slide)

to help show the project will reduce greenhouse, etc. Both information is in the business plan deck on page 17(economic impact) and page 18 (climate impact). 


Copy options to include:

A California Center for a Healthier Food Culture

One of the first closed-loop, zero waste, open-air farmers markets

Built with the principles of regenerative systems embedded in everything

Together, let's build the Center for Food and Agriculture - a place for our beloved Marin Farmers Market

We can make a difference and shape the future of our food systems 

Built with the principles of regenerative systems embedded in everything

Farmers Market will be 3x a week 


Additional information not mentioned on the website: 

The CFA will become a replicable model that can foster healthier, resilient communities by championing better food, climate justice, and economic equity. We envision the CFA as the world's first closed-loop, zero-waste farmers market targeting no on-site greenhouse gas emissions. In Marin County, we have access to a 4.63-acre site for the future home of the CFA at the historic Frank Lloyd-Wright Designed Marin County Civic Center campus.


The Center for Food and Agriculture will address inequities and dysfunctions in our food and farming systems, many of which have worsened during the Covid-19 crisis. Today, our small family farmers, ranchers, and food businesses continue to struggle due to retirements, labor shortages, the high cost of land, bankruptcies, and the growing pressures of the climate crisis.

The time has come to build a permanent space with a vibrant public common that preserves the livelihood of small and mid-size farmers, ranchers, fishers, small food businesses and artisans, while honoring resilient and thriving local and regional food systems. While the Center is physically located in Marin County, AIM currently serves over 390 small to mid-size farmers, ranchers, dairy producers, and small food businesses from 44 counties in California.

Ideally, San Francisco / Bay Area Based to see the physical space and parcel we are building on.
