We believe we have a message people need to hear....What you don't know can kill you! Over the past century our culture has moved from purchasing fresh, local foods, to an industrialized food system. Most people regularly consume genetically modified and processed foods which are causing sickness, not only to the body, but the mind and soul as well. Our generation has thrown out God's wisdom displayed in the perfect foods He created for the convienence of fast food, which in most cases isn't food at all. Our culture has lost connection with the land and the privilege of "walking with the Lord in the garden."
We have spoken at area churches and civic groups. We were featured on a CBN spot on backyard vegetable gardening in the spring of 2011 (link to view segment is on the bottom of our home page.) We have demonstrated and taught at VCU Small Farm events in Petersburg and Danville, VA. We have been gardening organically for over 12 yrs. We desire to share our experiences with others, encouraging them to reconnect with the land by raising produce and animals using sustainable and organic practices. It's a journey "back to the future"....take one step at a time... let us help you begin the journey today!
We teach a simple, yet profound way of gardening with woodchips, based on the independent film, Back to Eden. We believe it is important for everyone to know how to grow their own food, recycle their wastes by composting and how to save heirloom seeds, so you never have to buy seeds again!

BACK TO EDEN FILM
BACK TO EDEN shares the story of one man’s lifelong journey, walking with God and learning how to get back to the simple, productive methods of sustainable provision that were given to man in the garden of Eden. The organic growing system that has resulted from Paul Gautschi’s incredible experiences has garnered the interest of visitors from around the world.
After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues. None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul’s gardens and orchards.
“Back to Eden” invites you to take a walk with Paul as he teaches you sustainable organic growing methods that are capable of being implemented in diverse climates around the world.

FRESH, the Movie
view trailer here http://www.freshthemovie.com/
Our current industrial method of food production is increasingly viewed as an unsustainable system, destructive to the environment and public health. But what is the alternative?
Fresh profiles the farmers, thinkers, and business people across the nation who are at the forefront of re-inventing food production in America. With a strong commitment to sustainability, they are changing how farms are run, how the land is cared for, and how food is distributed. Their success demonstrates that a new paradigm based on sustainable practices can be profitable and a model for our food system, if people choose to support it.
Fresh opens with a short summary of the problems and consequences of industrialized food production, then focuses primarily on the individuals who are creating new approaches to address environmental, health, and economic challenges throughout the food chain.
Movie running time 70 minutes
Genetic Roulette - The Gamble of our Lives
IT IS A MUST SEE FILM FOR EVERYONE.
Are you and your family on the wrong side of a bet?
When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.
After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.
This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.
Running Time: 84 minutes
