The Real Dirt on Farmer John tells the story of one man, his farm and his family — a really interesting story about John, bridging the gap from traditional American farming practise, through the Green Revolution, and out the other side into Biodynamics and community based practise.

John is a fascinating man - equal parts performance artist, writer and farmer.

Released 2005. Director: Taggart Siegel.

Hey Lucy,

I have just been traveling through Greece!  ... was completely blown away by the abundance there ..not what I had expected, all the doomy gloom projected by media ... I came away just thinking, Wow, the Greeks have nothing to worry about, ... the forests still stand, the earth is fertile, the skies are clear, natural landscape exists and the urban sprawl isn't even so bad....and,  there is food growing everywhere!!  It was so obvious how urbanisation has killed something of the native zest when you visit the cities ... Athens was depressed ...  But you travel 20 minutes to the country and its completely alive .... Mother Earth waits patiently for her children to return ....          Greece is incredible.   I love your ideas, good luck helping those ghosts get back onto land .... It's the same ol story everywhere, poor old Greece gets battered around though, the rabble rabble love to pin the tail on the scapegoat (donkey).  

But the thing is, at the end of the day, the Greeks can GROW their own FOOD ...

We never visited Thessaloniki, but the Cretans would proclaim the same thing ....   Freedom!!!
