EVOLUTION OF ORGANIC (1h 17min, 2016)

EVOLUTION OF ORGANIC brings us the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. A motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers, and farmers' sons and daughters rejected modern chemical farming and set out to invent organic alternatives.
