Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

I watched this a few months ago and really enjoyed it.

While it didn't reveal much new information for me personally it was an amazing transformation showcasing just how important regenerative farming is. From soil building to polyculture to dealing with destructive nature both animals and environmental.

One thing I did like was that it highlighted constant issues and didn't make out that farming is easy, with the importance of pushing through those frustrating moments in gardening/farming by observation and finding solutions that fit within your ethos. Obviously having angel investors with deep pockets helps, but the practices remain relevant at any budget. It doesn't hurt either that the farmer is a cinematographer so is able to tell a beautifully scripted story. The before and after over the years is astounding.

I watched it via a streaming service at a friends place but this site shows it's playing in Brisbane in Jan at the New Farm Cinemas, possibly other locations nearer to you.
