Farmer John

We went with some friends to a screening of a delightful documentary, The Real Dirt on Farmer John, last night in Lowell.  Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) publicized the film because it’s about an eccentric northern Illinois farmer who is able to reverse the fate of his farm by selling shares of his harvest to Chicago residents desiring organic vegetables using the CSA model.  This is a movie about agriculture, yes, but also about forgiveness, community, abundant life, spiritual discovery, and self-expression in the face of misunderstanding.

To find out about his CSA (Angelic Organics) or purchase a DVD of the film, click here.  Check out the trailer below.
