Thank you all for attending our presentation, along with the Land Trust of Virginia, of “The Biggest Little Farm”. We certainly hope that you enjoyed the documentary film and came away with a feeling of awe, inspiration and the importance of protection of our environment.
We also had the opportunity to show our short documentary on the Goose Creek watershed, with the goal of how you can become active locally to help protect it. You can view it here on our website at https://goosecreek.org/video/
Marvin Watts, GCA Board Member and environmental enthusiast wrote, regarding The Biggest Little Farm;
“Elevated by ravishing photography, wit, and honesty, Biggest Little Farm is an unflinching, intimate dramatization of life and death and rebirth in our intricate web of earth and flora and animals wild and domestic, and people (also wild and domestic) with direct implications for the health of us all on this imperiled planet.
I particularly liked the emphasis on harmony arising out of calamity, the recognition all creatures play a part, even pests (ducks love snails), if we can figure it out. And all love, never quite safe, if we can find it–like the scruffy chicken “boyfriend” to the great fertile sow–is essential to our enduring security. With tears and laughter, we have here the full-blown mess and triumph of life.
GCA and LTV could not have chosen a more uplifting film in support of our land-based community and its preservation.”
