Women On The Land - Endorsements

"Women on the Land is a timely film that connects the powerful back-to-the-land women's self-sufficiency movement that began in the early 1970s with our pressing need today to create conscious communities, live sustainably, eat non-GMO food, and protect our bodies and Mother Earth from corporate greed. It's an awesome film that beckons us to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty. Whether we plant a garden or simply make better choices at the grocery store, this film will inspire you to take action for our planet!"

"An intimate look at women who've lived their passion, exactly what all of us want for our lives. Their story is about food and farming aligned with a flourishing earth. And it is about authenticity and courage—courage to be ourselves and therefore to open the way for others. Thank you!"

—Frances Moore Lappé
Author, Ecomind: Changing the Way We Think to Create the World We Want

"The wise women who are the subjects of this beautiful film have a compelling story to tell—a story about the maturing of '70s back-to-the-land idealism, and about what it means to live simply and sustainably in a petroleum-powered, consumer-driven world. This isn't about nostalgia: these gutsy, down-to-earth women are prepared for life in the 21st century. Watch, listen, and learn."
