LOVE IT!! I grew up in the country where we farmed and raised our animals, the family farm life. I have wanted to get back to growing crops and raising animals all on a sustainable farm. This movement inspires me and helps to keep the flame of getting "back to my roots" alive. Thanks for sharing! -Duncan

Small farms can be more sustainable than big, industrialized farms by doing the following, for example. Grow a variety of crops, provide nectar sources for pollinators year-round by planting locally native plants, collect/use rainwater, avoid withdrawal from aquifers in excess of replenishment from precipitation, grow farm animals as well as crops, compost greens/browns/manure and apply liberally on fields, avoid pesticides/herbicides/fertilizers, avoid heavy farm equipment that pollutes the air and compacts the earth, prevent erosion by wind and water.

I have a small farm here in Apex North Carolina where I have been growing my own fruits, veggies and flowers. Making our own Salsa and selling fresh farm eggs for quite a while now. What an amazing life. It makes me feel good to know I can grow for my local community and eat fresh from the dirt, and grow good quality food. What a great film for the farmers. Love & Peas Lu's Farm

This movie is AWESOME. I am inspired to start farming. Farming vegetables, herbs has been "growing" in my heart. Thanks for providing this outreach. Where can I learn more and get involved? Is there funding to get started? Blessings, Douglas

The cycle of Healthy Earth, Healthy People, Healthy Food- Being a Farmer is laying hands on the Earth. And there is real reciprocity in watching growth and abundance, harvest and fallow. The relationship between Farmer and Earth is passionate, this movement carries the passion. So now, you know, go GROW!
