The Biggest Little Farm + Q&A

English gesproken
Dutch ondertiteld

The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature.

Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature’s conflicts, the Chester’s unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.

Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, The Biggest Little Farm provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.


About our guest speaker

Pluk! Groenten van West was initiated by urban farming collective Cityplot at the beginning of 2017 in order to show that it is possible to provide urban dwellers with healthy organic food. Since, it has consolidated itself as a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, bridging the gap between urban and rural. Their model is a simple alternative to the current broken food system, and a move towards local food production. Harvesters pay an annual fee so that the farmers can grow fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers for them. So instead of consuming food grown in monocultures on the other side of the world, you can choose your own fresh ingredients and get to know your farmers personally. You save costs by cutting out the middlemen, you save the climate by harvesting your own food close to home, and you support local farming instead of the multinational supermarket.

This film is part of our program Rhizobia and will feature a Q&A with Heike van der Hoogte from ‘community supported agriculture’ Pluk! Groenten van West.
