COMMENTS

I read the market gardener and then listened to a podcast featuring Jean Martin Fortier. I am totally impressed with what he’s accomplished. We have been doing CSA for 20 odd years. We know the hard work that goes into it. We also are strong believers that this is the way well have to feed the future generations, glad that somebody did an inspirational film on market gardening and responsible agriculture in general.

I discovered this film after reading an article about Jean Martin Fortier’s market farm in Quebec. I am also a fan of Kristin Kimball farm model. Like many of my friends I tends to be very interested in environmental and sustainability issues. I imagine there are several regions in the U.S that would warmly receive your film. I’ll be sure to check back for the pay per view option.

Your documentary is really interesting! … With very good examples of new farming methods, environmentally and economically viable.
