Join Santa Barbara Permaculture Network for a special evening with Rachel Ward of Australian film fame, as she shares her experience of coming to terms with the catastrophic fires & floods that beset Australia in recent years. The personal story-telling style of her film features intimate interviews with Rachel, her family, her inquisitive young farm manager who prompts them on a regenerative farm learning path, and all the people she has been inspired by on her transition from the world of entertainment to the world of farming. With honesty, and even humor, the film gives a unique insight into her voyage from willful ignorance about the ecological impacts of conventional agriculture, to embracing a regenerative farming movement to restore the health of Australia’s farmland, food and climate. Conversation & Q&A with Rachel follows.
