Storyline

We can no longer stomach our food system. It's killing more and more Americans and costing billions in health care. 73% of Americans eat organic food, because they think it's healthier. But is it really the solution or just a marketing scam? When "organic" became a brand, everything changed. Small local farmers couldn't keep up with demand and big corporations went into the business. The philosophy and the label grew apart. Can processed gummy bears or bananas flown halfway across the world truly be organic? This film looks beyond organic for practical solutions for me and you. Local farmer's markets, school gardens, and urban farming are revolutionizing the way eat. Change is happening from the soil up. Get involved. Eat different. Written by Anonymous

A Documentary for the Layperson

This title is similar in structure and style to "Food Inc." - I don't know if that was deliberate but this documentary approaches organic food production (in contrast to industrialized agriculture) in a way that doesn't assume that the viewer is well-versed in the subject. The tone and feel are rather homespun and naive in an "aw shucks" kind of way that allows you to feel as though you are discovering the topic along with the narrator.

As for the other reviewer's comments about the lack of scientific credibility: he must have run out for some Cheetos and Mountain Dew when the assortment of Ph.Ds in the film spoke about nutrition density, industrial food processing and the results of scientific studies.
