When the barking of their beloved dog Todd in their tiny LA apartment leads to an eviction notice, John and Molly Chester decide to move to the foothills of Ventura County and create a farm that is in complete harmony with nature. But their 200 acres of land are drought-ridden and starved of nutrients, and it will take eight daunting years to create the utopia they seek. After the planting of 10,000 trees and over 200 different crops and after introducing animals of all sorts, the farm’s ecosystem finally begins to reawaken. Featuring gorgeous cinematography of the natural world, captivating animal stars Emma the pig and Greasy the rooster, and delivering the urgent message that agriculture must work symbiotically with nature, this essential documentary provides us with a vital blueprint for sustainable food production and better living.
