Event Description

You first read about CSA's (Community Supported Agriculture) in the Gulf News, now you can see the movie!

"The Real Dirt on Farmer John" tells the story of idiosyncratic Illinois farmer John Petersen who weathers the years of farming by running his farm in his own way. It includes wearing a feather boa while ploughing, following his avant-garde artistic passions; and during the 70's, turning the farm into a hippie community.

He helped pioneer the concept of CSA's and his farm became a successful example of organic agriculture. This film is organized by Waiheke's CSA group.
