“The Dinner” – a documentary about Sustainable Farming.
This documentary is for people who are thinking about improving their quality of life by taking steps to eat better and to make a smaller footprint on the environment. First steps could be as simple as planting vegetables in containers on your patio or balcony. This film addresses composting, seed starting, transplanting, weeding, and harvesting, and much more.
Below is an image of a simple garden. It contains raised beds (3×8 along the top, 3×3 in the top corners, and 3×6 along the sides. In the center is another raised bed that surrounds an heirloom apple tree. In this small bed herbs will be built. A fence will surround the entire garden and will have hardware cloth along the lower half to prevent critters from helping themselves to vegetables and fruits. Along the lower side of the garden is a place for a bench, some tools, and a composter. The point of this small garden is to “begin” and to enjoy being there. It was designed by Christina Allen, owner of Allen Heirloom Homestead.
For those who are looking to do more, the film will discuss chickens, turkeys, sheep, fiber, cider making, drying, and soap making. I invite you to take a look at the documentary and see if there’s something you could do for the first time or as a next step.
