Rachel’s Farm (PG)
Tuesday, 5 September, 2023 @ 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Film director and actor Rachel Ward is not the first person you’d expect to join a farming revolution.
In this triumphant film, director and actress Rachel Ward voyages from her own wilful ignorance about the ecological impacts of conventional agriculture, to championing a movement to restore the health of our farmland, food and climate.
Rachel’s Farm is a film for anyone who cares about how their food is produced, the health of our soils, and the changing role of women on farms.
Join Director Rachel Ward, Jade Miles from Sustainable Table, and Anthony James from RegenNarration podcast for a special panel discussion after the film #RachelsFarm.
More than a film, Rachel’s Farm is the entry point into a growing movement of people and readily available solutions that are working to support farmers and regenerate our soils, food and climate systems. And this screening comes just as the Regenerative Agriculture Conference 2023 is about to kick off in Margaret River!
“My inspiration for Rachel’s Farm came from personally experiencing the Australian Black Summer bushfires in 2019 and subsequently reading Charles Massy’s book Call of the Reed Warbler which details the challenges and accomplishments of many early adopters of the regenerative way of farming. I was inspired by the heroics of these farmers’ stories, many of whom had gone bust from farming conventionally in ever degenerating soils and increasing droughts before transitioning to regenerative farming practices. Consumed by the country’s devastating destruction, I was suddenly able to move from despair and impotence to action.”Rachel Ward
