I referred my sister to this movie as she is an environmental activist, thus she was incredibly pleased. Being from the midwest AND a "granola" plant and food worshipper, I identified with the movie incredibly. John is a hoot- a crazy, eccentric hippie who has no shame or fear of social standards.
Summary from Netflix- Filmmaker Taggart Siegel paints a fascinating portrait of a man who refuses to yield. By transforming his farm into an experimental haven in the late 1980s, John Peterson attracted hundreds of artists, hippies and other politial radicals. But when the agriulture crisis of the late 1980s led to his farm's eventual collapse- and his neighbors publically branded him a devil worshipper- most locals thought he'd call it quits. They were wrong.John teaches us an important lesson: build a relationship with your food! Know your grower, or better yet, GROW YOUR OWN!!! Even a small pot of herbs is a great start. The closer you get to the energetics of what you put into your body, the more likely you are going to digest, absorb, and excrete that product in an energetically sound manner. And you'll be darn proud of yourself.
If this task is too much for you right now, join a CSA (community supported agriculture). You can be a part-owner of a farm and thus receive boxes of fresh, organic, local fruits and vegetables (and perhaps eggs and meat, etc) at your doorstep.
k, back to studying...
