:: Film Description ::
What does an environmentally friendly biodynamic food system capable of feeding everyone actually look like? Across India marginal farmers are reviving an arcane form of agriculture and exposing the bio-colonialism of multinational corporations and their failed mantra of infinite growth in a finite world. One Man, One Cow, One Planet tells their story through the teachings of an elderly New Zealander many are calling the new Gandhi.
Featuring Peter Proctor, New Zealand’s father of modern biodynamics
One Man, One Cow, One Planet exposes globalization and its mantra on infinite growth in a finite world for what it really is: an environmental and human disaster.
But across India marginal farmers are fighting back. By reviving an arcane form on agriculture, they are saving their poisoned lands and exposing the biocolonialism of multinational corporations. One Man, One Cow, One Planet tells their story through the teachings of an elderly New Zealander many are calling their new Gandhi.
What does an environmentally sustainable food system capable of feeding everyone actually look like?
One Man, One Cow, One Planet is a blueprint for a post-industrial future. This film takes you into the heart of the world’s most important renaissance.
The outcome of the battle for agricultural control in India may just dictate the future of the earth.
:: ‘Locavore-Vegetarian Potluck’ ::
Bring something to contribute to the potluck – bring enough food for yourself/family and a bit to share. The primary focus of the ‘Locavore’ potluck is to promote eating whole foods, in their nature-made state, focusing on fresh food from local sources (or as local as possible)
If not FROM BACKYARD then locally produced.
If not LOCALLY PRODUCED, then Organic.
If not ORGANIC, then Family farm.
If not FAMILY FARM, then Local business.
If not a LOCAL BUSINESS, then Fair Trade.

:: ZERO WASTE & LOW IMPACT ::
Path to Freedom strives to make our each of our events as “eco- friendly” as possible. We have instigated a “low or zero waste policy” by providing compostable plates, cups, and utensils to ensure there is no unnecessary waste. All other waste (i.e., plastic wrappers, glass bottles, food containers, etc) and food scraps are recycled, reused, composted or fed to our pet chickens, goats, ducks & worms.
Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming that treats farms as unified and individual organisms, emphasizing balancing the holistic development and interrelationship of the soil, plants, animals as a closed, self-nourishing system. Regarded by some proponents as the first modern ecological farming system, biodynamic farming includes organic agriculture’s emphasis on manures and composts and exclusion of the use of artificial chemicals on soil and plants. Methods unique to the biodynamic approach include the use of fermented herbal and mineral preparations as compost additives and field sprays and the use of an astronomical sowing and planting calendar. Biodynamic agriculture has its basis in a spiritual world-view known as anthroposophy as propounded by founder Rudolf Steiner.
What if you don’t have a cow? Would you like to simulate such biodynamic practices in your garden? New on the Peddler’s Wagon!
