Homegrown Revolution is a short informational introduction to a homegrown project that has been called a new revolution in urban sustainability. In the midst of a densely urban setting in downtown Pasadena, radical change is taking root. For over twenty years, the Dervaes family have transformed their home into an urban homestead and a model for sustainable agriculture and urban living. Calling this project, “Path to Freedom,” the Dervaes Family shows that change is possible.
As a family for this new paradigm, they harvest 3 tons of organic food annually from their 1/10 acre garden while incorporating many back-to-basics practices, as well as solar energy and biodiesel in order to reduce their footprint on the earth’s resources. Environmentalism and the health of our planet is a theme that weaves through the film. This film is a mere 15 minutes but is packed with the history and the successful outcome of this new urban sustainability movement. It is meant to inspire and encourage others – young and old – to take a look at what they have and realize that change can begin with a single step and can be created right in our own backyards.
Check HGR companion website for the latest screening news or purchase a copy for yourself or community. All proceeds will go towards our ongoing and extensive outreach.
WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY
“Simply put, this is the revolution. You and your family are the start to something on a whole new level. Inspiration, dedication, and motivation is all that I can feel. I will follow in your footsteps. I have been drowning in a sea of gloom and doom. This video has gently nudged me out of my stupor and has reminded me why I even started paying attention to all that needs to be changed in the first place. I can start this right now, right here, today, in my own backyard. I don’t need to wait for oil to run out, or the Great Depression Part II. This is something that I can do for my family and for myself. “
