In celebration of all the treasured gifts from Mother Nature, let us take a look at two thought-provoking films about organic vegan farming. Based on Takuji lshikawa's book of the same name, “Miracle Apples” follows the true story of Akinori Kimura, who, for the sake of his wife’s health, goes on a decade-long quest to grow the perfect organic apples without the use of fertilizers and pesticides. “Miracle Apples” is an ode to the nourishing, eco-friendly practice of organic farming, and tells an earnest story about family, perseverance, and dedication. Simple and picturesque, “Final Straw: Food, Earth, Happiness” is a poetic and illuminating documentary which may change your perceptions of food and life forever. “Miracle Apples” and “Final Straw: Food, Earth, Happiness” are two uplifting movies showing us that if we truly respect nature and live peacefully with the other beings on this planet, our lives will be nourished with more happiness, health, and contentment.
