Film Description:
"At a farm in Massachusetts, a small group of people, including some scientists, explore possibilities for more humane, self-sufficient lifestyles involving interrelated food-producing systems and small-scale solar and wind technology. Their work is a model for others with the vision of a greener, kinder world and a taste for inventing the future. 'Think small,' say the New Alchemists. 'Look what thinking big has done.'"
-- National Film Board of Canada (source)
