Date Uploaded: 2017-12-12 20:44:04.0
After WWII industrial, chemical agriculture almost erased the memory of farming and gardening as practiced for millennia. Even before the 1960s back to the land movement put out a flamboyant reminder for safe food free from oil based fertilizers and insecticides individual, unknown farmers and organizations preserved the ancient heritage.

Director and writer Mark Kitchell, best known for his movies: Berkeley in the Sixties and his environmental film A Fierce Green Fire decided to document the many sources for the Evolution of Organic. The film is going into distribution in early 2018.

Kitchell's goal was to cover the range of practices and ideals that inspired the resistance to chemical agriculture, from Alan Chadwick to Rachel Carson to Rudolf Steiner’s Biodynamic philosophy. And the film eventually brings the history forward to today where organics in some ways reached their own production and distribution of scale, while other small scale farmers protect their specialties and local neighbor to neighbor support systems.

The film is 86 minutes long and this program presents ca 25 minutes of intriguing clips across generations. The narrator is Frances Mc Dormand.

The web site for the film is http://evolutionoforganic.com/

Today we feature the SECOND of what will be four presentations recorded at the conference titled "Balfour’s Legacy: Confronting the Consequences," held on November 11th at the First Parish Church in Cambridge MA. This conference commemorates the 100th anniversary of the so-called Balfour Declaration, a 67-word letter in 1917 signed by Lord Arthur Balfour, then Britain's Foreign Secretary.

Sea Change Radio: Aaron Huertas: Science Justice Warrior

Date Uploaded: 2017-12-12 14:17:43.0
Science is a required subject from kindergarten through 12th grade. It is not only a set of facts, it’s a way of thinking that has served as the engine for change. Yet, in the political landscape of the U.S., science has somehow become a controversial, and even divisive topic. How have we arrived at this reality wherein some people actively oppose the systematic search for knowledge? This week on Sea Change Radio, we check in with science communicator Aaron Huertas about his advocacy work. We discuss the fight for science justice, talk about the intersection of religion, science and politics, and look at some examples of how political divisions in this country damage the science community, and ultimately, all of us.
