Fundraising film visits ‘The Biggest Little Farm’

Whether or not you’ve already seen award-winning documentary “The Biggest Little Farm,” there is a great opportunity to take an evening reconnecting with the beauty of nature and experiencing what “feels like fresh air for the soul,” as described by Peter DeBruge in a Variety review of the film.

Local educational farm Seed to Table is offering a free screening as a part of their virtual event, “Two Weeks of Seed to Table,” to promote their silent auction supporting their own farm expansion and educational programming.

“The Biggest Little Farm” takes place outside of Los Angeles amidst monoculture farms and drought-ridden landscapes. Married couple Molly and John Chester find a solution to the challenges of city life by moving to an abandoned, 200-acre farm, only to be met with new challenges in farm life. The documentary takes you along a hopeful tale of their near-decade-long transformation of the land and all the ups and downs along the way.

The film is a balanced combination of informative and inspiring, with stunning cinematography and a moving musical score. It showcases the potential to heal landscapes through sustainable farming practices, and provides a refreshing take on a symbiotic relationship with nature. It leaves the viewer with lasting inspiration that a more harmonious connection with nature is possible for anyone. Rather than the usual climate change documentary doom and gloom, “Biggest Little Farm” will lift your spirits and maybe inspire brainstorming of a garden or farm of your own.

“The Biggest Little Farm” will be showing online for free Wednesday December 2, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. To watch, sign up for Seed To Table’s auction newsletter at for a link to the virtual screening.
