Colorado Proud is celebrating local food and agriculture with its Follow Your & Veggie Journey that kicked off August 1, and runs through the entire month.

The idea is to explore the lifecycle of local produce and bridge the gap between farmers and consumers.

Wendy White with the Colorado Department of Agriculture stopped by 9NEWS Thursday morning to talk more about the program. Learn more in the video above.
