The National Farmers Union (NFU) has teamed up with March Forth Creative Inc. to produce and present 40 short documentary films showcasing farm stories from across Canada with a focus on sustainable practices.

Rotational grazing, seed saving, building healthy soils, and working for social justice–different farmers highlight their own priorities and, together, these films tell the story of farming practices that would create the local food system we all want.

NFU has just recently released its first 3 films, one being about Lucky Bug Farm located in Baden, Ontario.

Lucky Bug Farm is a one-quarter-acre ecological market garden operating on rented land 25 minutes from Kitchener-Waterloo. Lucky Bug Farm relies on interplanting and minimal tillage to build soil health and in turn, a productive ecological market garden. They buy organic seeds as much as possible, use organic potting mix and do not use synthetic amendments, sprays or fertilizers.
