Project Moonshine is currently accepting applications from local high school students for the upcoming program in 2011, which includes a documentary on local food production and sustainability. This will be a hands-on, educational documentary video production program that chronicles a year in the life of local Northern Nevada farmers.
There is no cost to participate in Project Moonshine, but acceptance is competitive.
