The 
150-Mile Wardrobe, wheat seeds developed to withstand high heat, and the Healthy Food Policy Project

The 150-Mile Wardrobe initiative brings together about 104 farmers, ranchers, weavers, spinners, and designers across 19 counties to make up a garment-producing system where every producer

uses materials sourced within a 150-mile radius; scientists have developed wheat varieties from ancient seeds, without GM, that withstand high temperatures and grow remarkably fast in only 92 days; and a team of leading food lawyers and legal scholars in the United States is launching the Healthy Food Policy Project - a collaborative initiative working to identify and elevate effective local food laws as examples for advocates in communities across the country.
