The Real Dirt on Farmer John
This is a fascinating movie about a family farmer who lost his land in the great farm crisis of the early '80's and has redeemed himself by regaining much of his land and becoming a biodynamic vegetable farmer following the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model. Angelic Organics is now one of the country's largest CSA's. What makes the movie particularly fascinating is that John Peterson is a writer/poet/philosopher as well as being a farmer. This movie is really eye opening, entertaining and uplifting and has won numerous awards. It has been endorsed by Al Gore and Alice Waters!
