The Biggest Little Farm

“THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature.

Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature’s conflicts, the Chester’s unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.

Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.”

Critics Consensus from Rotten Tomatoes: “Uplifting, educational, and entertaining, The Biggest Little Farm is an environmental advocacy documentary with a satisfying side dish of hope for the future.”

Climate, Equality, and Environmental Justice

Presentation by Dr. Cody Petterson

“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” ~Audre Lorde~

We are at a time when crucial decisions must be made, and difficult actions taken to avert the worse consequences of anthropogenic climate change. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion by anthropologist and environmental activist Dr. Cody Petterson. In this talk he will explore the interdependency of our economic, political, and climate crises. Dr. Petterson will also make it clear why it is impossible to achieve sustainability without equity and environmental justice.
Dr. Petterson is the president of the San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action and is on the board for the San Diego River Conservancy. He also dedicates his time to the conservation and restoration of native habitat.

There will be time for questions from the audience. Arrive at 5:00 PM and enjoy music from Dryad (Sabine and Jon Sherman). This free event is hosted by the North County Climate Change Alliance and the Vista Public Library.
