Recharging the present
Could ecological agriculture and sustainable production and consumption be the driving forces of a profitable, communitarian and humanist economy?
Subbética Ecológica is an association of producers and consumers that has been working for more than a decade in the centre of Andalusia (Spain) for a model that promotes traditional vegetable gardens, dignifies peasant’s work, supports a short distribution channel and farmers’ direct sales, within the framework of the Economy of the Common Good.
Through a collective portrait and the confluence of numerous testimonies, this documentary, by NanoMundo productions, aims to give visibility to a model that is not only successful on the economical, ecological and food dimensions, but which also goes further in promoting ethical and social values that increasingly have an impact on its environment and community.
