Are you concerned about the quality of our food, our degraded waters, and the increase in chronic diseases throughout America? How America treats our soils and grows our food makes huge differences in the lives of all Americans, including the farmers themselves. See Central Illinois’ first showing of this empowering film featuring the journey of a Minnesota farm family and triple board-certified physician, Zach Bush MD.

This story features the trials of Dr. Zach Bush and soil health expert Dr. Allen Williams of Soil Health Consultants, LLC identifying the root cause of the current chronic disease epidemic and its connection to agricultural practices. The story also highlights the education and victories of the
four-generation Breitkreutz family from Stoney Creek Farm in Redwood Falls, Minnesota, as they transitioned from conventional to regenerative agriculture, and in the process improved both the ecological and financial health of their row crop and cattle operation.

Followed by panel discussion featuring:
Farmer’s Footprint Film Director Nicol Ragland, Executive Director David Leon, and Farmers Rick Clark and Chase Brown
