Robert McFalls’ new film, HomeGrown is the inspiring story of the Dervaes family – father, son and two daughters – that run a small organic farm in the heart of urban Pasadena, California.

Living off the grid, they harvest more than 6,000 pounds of produce on
less than a quarter-acre of land, make their own biodiesel, power their
computers with the help of solar panels, and maintain a Web site that gets
4,000 hits a day. The film offers an intimate portrait of urban pioneers
living a “Little House on the Prairie” existence in the 21st century.

You can see the trailer for the film above, or at www.homegrown-film.com
or on You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z54yRKjiSxA.

HomeGrown will just screened New York City’s Lincoln Center as part of
their Green Screens series on November 3rd at the Walter Reade Theater at
Lincoln Center, New York City.
