Happen Films: Restoring Paradise (2017)
- Farming, Documentary, Lifestyle, organic, biodynamic
Regenerative agriculture offers a future for the sustainable farming of meat, by using holistic grazing and organic/biodynamic practices and even sequestering carbon in the soil. At Mangarara, in New Zealand’s beautiful Hawke’s Bay, Greg Hart and his family are in the process of restoring 1500 acres of land, conventionally farmed for over 150 years.
Focusing on diversity of animals, plantings and practices they are creating not only a beautiful landscape but also a beautiful place for animals and people to live and thrive. Holistic grazing keeps the grass long in order to build soil biology, sequester carbon, and keep animals naturally healthy.
