"The Biggest Little Farm" Movie (2019) Nature's Power of Self-Renewal!



Trailer ~ If youíve seen the movie ďThe Biggest Little Farm,Ē youíve caught a glimpse of natureís superpower in living color. It is a power that she uses quietly and faithfully. It is a power we could harness right now across Earthís 1.1 billion acres of deserted farmland to combat the escalating perils of biodiversity loss, food insecurity, and global warming. Itís a power we humans continuously fail to recognize.What is it? Itís natureís power of self-renewal, known in farming parlance as regeneration.

As shown in the movie which has been playing in theaters since May and is scheduled for release on Amazon and iTunes this week, Molly and John Chester harness this force on their farm, Apricot Lane in Moorpark, California. Itís a vibrant place where earthworms, snails, snakes, bees, chickens, cows, ducks, dogs, pigs, hawks, gophers, hummingbirds, and even coyotes all play a role. Itís a farm where, instead of continually waging war against nature, the Chesters actively foster the conditions that allow her to breathe, flourish, and regenerate.. https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/08/19/got-climate-anxiety-watch-biggest-little-farm-template-regeneration

6. I need to see this. Reminds me of a Star Trek: the Next Generation episode

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0708702/

This would work but we have a billionaire problem. Small farms are less efficient (don't read that as better). So you can't displace a lot of workers for cheap labor in factories so billionaires can control commerce and reap enormous profits.
But as the TNG episode states, it is the only road to saving the planet
