Organic evolution

June Fourth Friday attendees got a sneak peak at a rough cut of the new “Evolution of Organic” film, which follows the organic movement in California from the 1970s to today. The film profiles the early visionaries who integrated love for the soil, health, and culture; the entrepreneurs who expanded the scale and scope of organic; and the new visionaries of today, who are bringing the next generation into organic farming and grazing and expanding into new areas such as carbon sequestration.

Filmmaker Mark Kitchell introduced the film and led a lively discussion and feedback session afterwards.

Mark is working hard to complete the film in time for the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017, and needs funding to help complete the work. He’d greatly appreciate contributions of any amount.
