Overview

This is a transcript of the award wining DVD, Day on the Organic Farm. It includes over 60 pages of information on: bee keeping, understanding trees and the role they play in energy conservation, green architecture, foraging for food, solar energy year round, composting, organic farming, Planting by the Sisters, and organic cooking. Just real people talking about real ways we can keep our bodies and our planet healthy.
Topics covered are as follows:
1. Organic Foods: learn the definition of ‘organic’ and the many ways organic foods are grown, produced and processed through a system of farming. 2. Understanding Trees: Explains how to chose the best tree for your yard and demonstrates how to plant trees that are compatible with your house, property and energy needs. 3. Solar Energy: Explains solar energy usage, systems, cost, and the advantages of using solar energy.
4. Foraging by Native Americans: Foraging is attracting more and more attention from gourmet cooks, raw food enthusiasts and anyone who is choosing to live a more natural and healthy lifestyle. Find out how to seek out edible wild plants for food like the prehistoric hunter/gatherers and why it is so beneficial for your body.
5. Composting: To gardeners, compost is considered "black gold" because of its many benefits in the garden. Learn how to make and use compost, troubleshoot problems and why this is the best fertilizer for your garden. 6. Planting by the Sisters: Native peoples from different parts of North America have used a wide range of agricultural techniques. Perhaps the best known is the mixed planting of corn, beans and squash, a trio often referred to as the "three sisters." You can cultivate these companions in your school garden, a barrel, or even indoors and learn more about Native American customs, nutrition and how the three partners benefit one another. For example: Corn provides support for beans… beans have bacteria living on their roots which helps corn grow… the large, prickly squash leaves shade the soil, preventing weed growth and deterring animal pests. This is a wonderfully efficient and nutritional way to garden. 7. Organic Farming: Organic farming has become one of the fastest growing segments of U.S. agriculture.
8. Green Architecture: Learn the philosophy of designing a building that is in harmony with the natural features of any location so it is green, sustainable and aesthetic.
9. Organic Cooking: Learn how to make organic sourdough bread and the benefits of cooking organically.

Editorial Reviews

Cayle Fuller
Very, very interesting! If you have ever had an interest in organic foods and green living, you will really enjoy the written dialogue from the movie "Day on the Organic Farm". I have been interested in these topics for over a decade now, and I still learned a lot of good information. I love how everything is all compiled into one book... I can read about bee keeping, tree planting, solar energy, lawn and garden techniques, foraging for wild nutrients, organic farming and cooking in one sitting.
