LYONS, NEBRASKA – The documentary, "Dreaming of a Vetter World," will be presented at the Storefront Theater on Main Street in Lyons, Nebraska, at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7.
Hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs, no admission will be charged.
The movie follows three generations of a Nebraska farm family who share the struggles they have faced as small-scale organic farmers in an era of industrial agriculture.
“Dreaming of a Vetter World” is directed by Bonnie Hawthorne.
“The Vetters understood that modern agriculture was ailing, and found a cure,” Hawthorne said. “From farmer’s son to soil scientist to missionary and back to farmer, organic pioneer David Vetter has dedicated his life to a ‘ministry to the soil.’”
Vetter has an interest in regenerating soil, a trend that has emerged worldwide.
“With both historical context and an eye to the future, ‘Dreaming of a Vetter World’ shows it's possible to jump off conventional agriculture’s pesticide treadmill,” Hawthorne said. “It’s also a story about love, hope and place; an inspiring example of perseverance and doing what you know is right – against all odds.”
Please RSVP to Trish Darnell, at the Center for Rural Affairs, at email@example.com or 402.687.2100. If there’s enough interest, Vetter will attend for a question and answer session.
The presentation is weather permitting.
