interesting films on related subjects.

as you may (or may not) have noticed, this blog is going to be posted quite late. i was sleepy and very busy last week, and i did not prioritize the posting of my blog as i ought.

however, now i'm here to present some interesting film clips on topics related to farming, gardening, food, etc. they will be few, but they will be meaningful!

The Garden at the White House
This describes the creation of the new White House garden, and features Michelle Obama inviting school children to help plant, harvest, and cook with the vegetables they grow!

(Movie Preview) "The Garden"
This is the Academy Award nominated documentary all about the struggles that have plagued the South Central Farm. Our program coordinator, Sarah Nolan, has been volunteering with these folks since the time that this film was made. It's an incredible film, and it's now out to buy/rent. Please do see it!

Michael Pollan- "The Omnivore's Next Dilemma"
Anything that's on TED is worth watching. Anything that Michael Pollan has to write/say is worth reading/hearing. Enough said.

Organic Pest Control
I just find this topic really interesting. And sometimes watching something on it is much more amusing than reading a text book on organic integrated pest control.

And that's all for this week. Tune in next week (or tomorrow...) for some of my actual thoughts, rather than a collection of other folks' genius.
