New Farms, Big Success
This inspiring documentary, presents three ecologically responsible farms in the USA and Canada. Their unique business plans eliminate the middle man, use sustainable methods and few fossil fuels and show a decent living can be made! These new farming practices avoid the destructive trap of industrial food production and its financial burden. With the participation of Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations and leading USA environmentalist, author and educator, Bill McKibben, this documentary provides critical information to develop an enduring, local food network in a time of climate change.
The three rock star farmers:
Kristin Kimball, author of The Dirty Life and farmer of Essex Farm
Jean-Martin Fortier, author of The Market Gardener and farmer of Les Jardins de la Grelinette.
Lauren Rathmell, greenhouse manager of Lufa Farms.
This documentary includes the official point of view of The Convention on Biodiversity, the UN office specialized in the protection of life on Earth, about the links between climate change, biodiversity and farming.
