The ECG runs from Key West to Maine and impacts 435 rural communities.
The film also, highlights the rich area of Armstrong which was settled by West Africans, known as Gullah Geechee, after the Civil War. The Gullah Geechee people are immigrants to the New World of West African descent and have kept their agricultural expertise and rich cultural heritage alive through the years. The Gullah Geechee corridor was established by Congress in 2006.
