February Fourth Friday – The Organic Life

Cutting through the romance and hype, what is it really like to be an organic farmer? Meet filmmaker Casey Beck for a special showing of “The Organic Life,” followed by discussion and questions.organic life

It’s a story that’s filled with sweat, blisters, sun, and rain as well as a compelling passion for life, food, and the earth, which seems unique to farmers. The film questions the financial future of these young people. However, as it shows one such farmer’s 21st-century approach, it demonstrates that this can be a viable and fulfilling profession. In this way, The Organic Life is a look at sustainable farming-not merely how the farm itself is viable, but also how the farm sustains its keepers. Click for more info about the film
