ABOUT THE FILM

Can we really rely on that little label at the grocery store that says “Organic”? What exactly does that mean, and what more should we be asking? This film examines the philosophies and complexities of organic farming, organic certification, and the big business which is growing along with the popularity of organic goods. Are foods healthy because they are organic? Are subsidies for farmers helping or hurting? Can schools afford to provide healthy food? Can city dwellers, especially children, learn to connect to the sources of food, and make healthy food shopping or growing a community activity?
