Evolution of Organic brings us the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. A motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers and farmers’ sons and daughters 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. By now organic has gone mainstream, split into an industry oriented toward bringing organic to all people, and a movement that has realized a vision of sustainable agriculture.

Evolution of Organic looks to exciting and important futures:

·  The next generation who are broadening organic into no-till and eco-fashion, even raising salmon in flooded rice fields

· Carbon farming as a solution to climate change, taking carbon dioxide out of the air and putting it in the ground where it belongs – “the best news on the planet”

·  What lies beyond organic, from soil microbiology as the new frontier to regenerative agriculture that restores everything from the ecosphere to the human spirit.
