Evolution of Organic

It all started with a motley crew of back-to-the-earth hippies who rejected the poisons of industrial farming. The organic movement went on to spawn a renewed connection with our food, our land, and ourselves. Filmmaker Mark Kitchell (Berkeley in the Sixties, A Fierce Green Fire) presents a celebration of American organic farming told by the people that started it all – and the passing down of their knowledge to a new generation who continue to reinvent the food system. Narrated by Oscar-winning Frances McDormand with music by The Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Country Joe and The Fish, and other bands of the era. (86 mins)

Post-film discussion: John Wilson is a long-time organic farmer and educator in the practice of permaculture.
