FILM DESCRIPTION: This is the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. Narrated by actress Frances McDormand, and featuring songs by The Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen and others, the film shows how a motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers and farmers’ sons and daughters rejected chemical farming and set out to explore organic alternatives. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Mark Kitchell, this film also looks ahead to exciting innovations. Teens and young adults encouraged to attend. Brief nudity. Strong Language.
