This is the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. A motley crew of back-to-the-landers reject chemical farming and set out to explore organic alternatives. It’s a heartfelt journey of change – from a small band of rebels to a cultural transformation in the way we grow and eat food. Organic has now gone mainstream, split into an industry oriented toward bringing organic food to all people and a movement that has realized a vision of sustainable agriculture. The next generation of organic farmers is broadening their scope to include methods such as “no till” and carbon farming as a climate solution. Regenerative agriculture is the new frontier.
