Better Farm is to be featured in an upcoming documentary, with filming at the farm commencing this Friday.

The documentary, Ways of Living, follows a road trip around America in search of alternative and sustainable ways of life. The focus is love, posi vibes, living freely, wide open hearts, harming nothing. The film—due out this winter and produced by filmmakers Jessica Watkins and Harper Cowan—explores alternative technologies and sustainable practices, and features interviews with all sorts of people—artists, musicians, farmers, commune dwellers, earth ship builders and the like!

The documentary is a part of a larger collaborative project called ANIMA RISING, the scope of which utilizes websites, a blog, and documentary film to produce creative content that raises consciousness, increases awareness, and inspires viewers to think—and live—outside the box.

Next stop for the filmmakers is Better Farm, where we'll treat our visitors on Saturday to a classic Better Farm family dinner party, work in the gardens, tours of the grounds, information on the cultural outreach work of sister organization betterArts, sing-a-longs, storytelling, and the opportunity to meet all of you who make this place great.

Here's the official trailer for the documentary Ways of Living:
