We’ve loved up this movie before, but having just come out of a screening at the Bioneers conference in Marin, it was too great not to remind all about its pertinence to the current state of affairs, and not just for the agricultural world—to all of us.

As Michael Pollan said in the movie, “bees are the legs of plants”, and if they are threatened or destroyed by a phenomenon coined Colony Collapse Disorder, it means our ability to grow nearly half of our food becomes paralyzed.

    LOVED this movie!

  2. Thanks, Kate, of posting this!!
    This movie is a fantastic offering indeed, and a great reminder of where we need to put our attention if we want to live in truly sustainable ways. Another great offering from Collective Eye is "The Real Dirt on Farmer John," a great exploration of how a change in one farmer's life, attitude and practice can help us all to change the way we live, the way we eat, and the way we treat this miraculous planet. I had an opportunity to visit his farm and it was truly a pilgrimage … if you'd like to find out more about this film and its invitation, please take a look at http://www.elephantjournal.com/2011/10/real-dirty
