The film will discuss: How to stop the main degradation and make our food system regenerative - small-scale farmers around the world are fighting to regenerate landscapes by producing food agro ecologically, to preserve biodiversity and restore nature's ability to self regulate its climate. The third part is mostly around how to stop killing the biosphere, and the main need is in changing our food system toward "farming in partnership with nature" - small-scale ecological farming. Globally, this already is providing 70% of all foods-
The film's Director, John Feldman never intended to talk about agriculture, but said that it makes no sense to talk about living landscapes/biodiversity WITHOUT talking about agriculture. Our treatment of the living landscape is the unnecessary tragedy of humankind...
