A friend of mine sent me a link for this 28-minute video of an archival “classic” about experimental systematic organic farming.  The video is a reformatted film distributed by the National Film Board of Canada, and it’s about a group called the New Alchemists.  If their name has a ring to it, it’s because (from what I understand) they were sort of famous in alternative circles back in the 1970s…  and people never completely forgot them.

The farm featured and explained was in Massachusetts, and this group lived and worked there.  But the group had another one later on Prince Edward Island, Canada.

I thought a lot of people here at Permies might enjoy their time spent watching, so I’m posting.
 
I didn't like the taste of tongue and it didn't like the taste of me. I will now try this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
