New Documentary

June 29th, 2008

Mr. Chiots and I LOVE documentaries, we are videographers by trade (2nd Mile Productions is our company). We really enjoyed King Cornand In the Shadow of the Moon.I just read on Path to Freedom’s blog today that there is going to be a documentary made about urban homesteading called Homegrown. Looks like one that Mr. Chiots and I are sure to love.

Watch the trailer.

HOMEGROWN follows the Dervaes family who run a small organic farm in the heart of urban Pasadena, California. While “living off the grid”, they harvest over 6,000 pounds of produce on less than a quarter of an acre, make their own bio diesel, power their computers with the help of solar panels, and maintain a website that gets 4,000 hits a day. The film is an intimate human portrait of what it’s like to live like “Little House on the Prairie” in the 21st Century.

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
