My Father’s Garden tells the story of Fred Kirschenmann, organic farmer and leader in the sustainable agriculture movement. His message is deeply serious: we are rapidly losing the natural resources and human wisdom that are necessary to grow food, but there is a way out of this dilemma.
My Father’s Garden is an engrossing documentary about the use and misuse of technology on the American farm. At its essence, it is a story of hope. By examining the central philosophies that guide our relationship with nature, the film shows how each of us can bring health and beauty back into the garden, our planet.
