Growing up on a family farm on the prairies left Linda with a deep connection to this area of Canada and rural life. This connection is a theme behind many of her films. During the 1990's, Linda embarked on an extensive community to community tour with her first film, "The Last Harvest". She traveled through the rural areas of the Peace River, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. On the tour, she met groups and farm families, spoke to media, classes and organizations to raise awareness for the decline and tragic loss of family farms in Canada. In 1993, Linda was a guest speaker at the National Farmers Union Convention along with American Ralph Nader consumer rights advocate and writer, Al Krebs.
From the community tours, she remembers, "in one small northern community, we met in the local hall, and about 50 people watched the film gathered around a 24 inch television screen that showed everything in one color: green! But, it turned out to be one of those very special gatherings." With these tours behind Ohama, "The Last Harvest" achieved a landmark in Canadian broadcasting which enabled her to reach a much broader audience Canada wide, when she was offered a national prime time television broadcast for this film on the CTV Network in 1994. This license became the first broadcast of an independent Canadian documentary from Western Canada by this major television network, which helped to open the door for this genre in the following years. In spring 1997, Ohama's concerns again moved her to spear-head a fundraiser for Red RIver flood victims called "Neighbours Helping Neighbours" at Robson Square in Vancouver. This special event featured guest speakers and a screening of her documentary, "Neighbours, Wild Horses and Cowboys" to raise donations from the urban community for the Red Cross Flood Relief for flood victims in rural southern Manitoba. Guest speakers includedArchbishop Michael Ingham, City Folks activist, Herb Barbolet, the main character, Merritt Murphy, from "Neighbours, Wild Horses and Cowboys" and Gladys Manness, a flood victim from Morris, Manitoba in the Red River Valley.
