In Our Hands: A Documentary Series about People Regenerating Their Lives & The Earth (2020)

2

‘In Our Hands’ / ‘En Nuestras Manos’ is a documentary series about a movement to restore ecological farming around the world. Filmmaker Matt Anderson (‘Fall and Winter’, 2013) traveled to over 40 farms and gardens in 7 countries to document the profound impact the GROW BIOINTENSIVE method of food raising has had on communities; from rural Kenya to the Sacred Valley in Peru.

This 9-part series focuses on a close-knit network of farmers and teachers who’ve been busy training others in this timeless way of growing food. GROW BIOINTENSIVE is composed of sustainable farming principles collected from the wisdom of mankind’s most successful civilizations. It uses few resources on very little land, requires no heavy machinery, no chemicals and generates its own compost while providing healthy, abundant food. This knowledge has passed from person to person, workshop after workshop and propelled a global open-source agricultural revolution which is now set to play a major role in mitigating climate change.

Come into the garden and uncover the fundamentals of growing a sustainable food system at a human scale. Meet these teachers who are inspiring farmers across the planet to regenerate not only their land, but also their lives. And empower yourself by learning the principles that will help you to grow your own food and turn scarcity into abundance.

The answers are beneath our feet. The future is in our hands.
