Evolution of Organic is a heartfelt journey of change, from a small band of rebels to a cultural transformation in the way we grow and eat food.

From the makers of Fierce Green Fire, Evolution of Organic brings us the epic story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement: a motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers, and farmer’s sons and daughters who  rejected chemical farming and set out to invent organic alternatives.

Organic has already gone mainstream, split into an industry oriented toward bringing organic to all people, and a movement that has realised a vision of sustainable agriculture.

It’s the most popular and successful outgrowth of the environmental impulse in the last fifty years.

After guiding us through the fascinating birth of the organic movement, the film throws its lens on the exciting future of organic farming and agriculture.

We hear stories about a new generation of farmers who are building no-till urban farms in the most unlikely places. We learn about eco-fashion Latino growers, ingenious ways of combining salmon and rice farming for increased production, and  the massive potential of organic Carbon farming for climate restoration. 

From a fascinating birth to a powerful future, the potential of organic agriculture to regenerate the world we live in can no longer be ignored.
