The Living Soil

Part 2 of the "Living Farms" film series
by May 31, 2015

The debates on GMO and organic farming, the future of farmers and agriculture, and the politics of food are not new. But even so, we find ourselves today at a crucial point, not just in terms of a movement committed to resisting biological and ecological destruction, but also in the presence of a network of ‘living’ and thriving economies. The Living Farms series explores these questions, looking at five specific aspects of farming – Seed, Soil, Food, Fibres and Farmers.

The films are based on the testimonies of farmers, seed savers, agronomists and scientists from across India, as well as from indigenous farming cultures abroad.
