Soil and water are the beginnings of all things that sustain life. The indigenous women of Sogorea Te' Land Trust know this from their ancestors long ago and from the call of the children yet to be born in the future. There is a sacred bond to Mother Earth that invites each of us to respect nature wherever we live. It is for this reason that the sustainable gardens at Sogorea Te' are being maintained and used as an educational garden that shows how we can farm the land using the non-colonial methods of indigenous and black people who remained close to the land. By using regenerative farming, we may all learn how to live in harmony with the land. Together, we can find a balance with the soil, water, and air so that all creatures may live in balance with each other for a sustainable future.

    A film about the freedom to grow your own food from the land, There are two things that are distractions, in this film, from the message. If we want real freedom, that should include the freedom to breathe the air of the land, without restrictions to our oxygen intake. When we were born to this planet it was with the gift of breath. Don’t let anyone take that away from you. The other concern I have is about the linking of the joys and freedom of growing our own food, to skin color. Growing our own food has been the way of every nation, every color of skin on the planet, since life began. Isn’t it time we ALL reclaim our God-given rights to breath freely and grow our food freely. Dear Planet and it’s People, please heal as One.

    It is a beautiful and insightful film, speaking from the heart. Unfortunately my attention was absorbed watching the masked faces, even when alone, even when alone in a car or office or house, even outside in nature on an organic piece of land. To my mind it is contradicting the revolutionary attitude of regenerative practices: Nature in her majesty is all encompassing, all accepting - from the tiniest to the biggest creatures. Nature is protection itself and separating ourselves out of it is arrogant. Sad, sad, sad times, when we live in fear.
