HOME a film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Here is a Video you can watch with your whole family.  It has beautiful cinematography and is very compelling and informative on all levels.  I would make sure the children watch and take in all the information on this video.  This film will compel you think about your environment and the need to look after it.

“Home the movie is a fascinating look into how we as humans are upsetting the delicate balance on Earth. What I love about this film is how eloquently it shows that our food habits are one of the leading contributors to this problem, which also inadvertently shows that there is something that we can do about it! As David Wolfe mentions in ‘Food Matters‘ “the main way in which we interact with the planet is through agriculture”. This offers much hope in that if we change our food habits we not only can improve our health but also the health of the planet. What could be more satisfying?

This is not your average doom and gloom film, it is an objective look into where we are at on planet earth and offers subtle hints as to what we can do about improving our health and the health of the planet. Enjoy” – James Colquhoun – Producer, ‘Food Matters’.

I am reminded, when I watch this film that we as a society are being affected locally as well as globally.  Just take a look at all the rich available farmland around our area in particular and what do you see growing?  Besides sprawling subdivision roads and houses, there is an abundance of seed corn and soybeans, not for us to eat as a vegetable, but for the production of our meat industry and also for fast-food sweeteners.  At the grocers, where do we get most of our food supply? From imports…  when we live in the most fertile growing land in the world.

I like the fact that the film shows what we are doing now to attempt to improve and become responsible consumers.  Watching this film makes me think seriously about how important it is to support in our little corner of our earth, our little local Amish organic community we have found or should I say found us, and appreciate how they nurture the land, produce our food with minimal consumption of our water supply and oil, by hand, free of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.  We also need to support our children and encourage them to focus a future career in agriculture and farming and sustainability.  Helping our food supply, one veggie at a time.

I suggest you take a moment and watch this.
