Green Film Series: Evolution of Organic

Montclair’s office of Environmental Affairs and Community Green presents “Evolution of Organic”, the newest screening in the Green Film Series on Thursday, April 19, 6:00 p.m. at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton, Montclair, 07042. Please note the earlier time!

“Evolution of Organic” brings us the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. A motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers and farmers’ sons and daughters reject chemical farming and set out to explore organic alternatives. It’s a heartfelt journey of change from a small band of rebels to a cultural transformation in the way we grow and eat food. By now organic has gone mainstream — split into an industry oriented toward bringing organic to all people, and a movement that has realized a vision of sustainable agriculture.

“Evolution of Organic” is not just a history, but looks to exciting and important futures like no-till and urban farms; carbon farming as a solution to climate change; and what lies “beyond organic”, from soil microbiology as the new frontier to visions of a regenerative agriculture that restores everything from the ecosphere to the human spirit. As Bu Nygrens says laughing, “Inevitable Vegetable!”

Bring a friend, neighbor, or your family chef to this free screening. For further questions, contact Marnie at
