We watched the trailer on your website and thought omigod those are our people!!

Some of us have never given up those values even though life has tken us to some very unexpected places and the world hasn't evolved the way we hoped it would...But what's true and good STILL makes sense. We looked for the movie on Netflix (no luck) and there isn't even a book story here in Salinas anymore much less a theater that would ever show the movie. (but who knows?) ...we are happy to support your film in this small way.

Kevin, spending many years on the land at Chesaw, having and raising my kids there is an experience that people can't fathom, but your film has taken our life and prestented in such a touching way, I think many people will open their eyes to the idea. Our children carry those values with them into adulthood, and now others can do the same thing. Thank you so much for the work and time that you spent. I just can't express the pride I felt watching it.

Good Luck to you!

As the years have carried us and our children through our experiences of Back to the Land living, we have seen the succeeding generations embrace those principles we felt so clear in our hearts....simple service, caring for our home (The Earth), and have a compassionate approach to all relationships. Thank you for getting people to consider lifestyle impacts.

Thank you Mr. Tomlinson for your movie. Now is a good time to release your movie. I truly believe that there is a new movement going now that is about love and peace and saving Mother Earth...

The generation X'ers are coming into power.

This film is fostering a reunion of the back to the land dreamers and all those who dared try something different. I think time is proving our concepts valid, if not all our methods. The love and joy we've experienced in this journey can never be destroyed. So cool to see familar names on these comments and find out "Where are they now?" Everyone is bringing change in their own way. Appropriate technology is very important so we we can move society forward in a sustainable way while still allowing our Natural selves to be free and flourish. As the farmers go, so goes the Nation, the World!

Kevin,

Was touched deeply by your film "Back to the Garden."

I am/was a back-to-the-lander~starting in the mid-sixties. Still living a close to the earth-

in-the -trees-quiet-breeze -simple-life.

We are returning to embrace a lot of the same values as we had back then~except now it is more mature and real~especially in the face of our seeming self-annihilation that continues to rage. Yet so many good things are happening~to turn us towards a more sustainable future. Yet so few of us still actually living that life.

Thanks for the great film!

Congratulations to Kevin and all involved in the making of this wonderful film! I couldn't keep myself from crying at the wonderful lives these people created for themselves. It's left me with an even stronger yearning for this way of life - these people really know how to live!!

Much love from London, UK.

We have enjoyed Back to the Garden very much. It also brought to the front of my consciousness my dear friend Jerry Bartels whom I lost contact with. Are you out there Jerry?

Wow, that's great! Congratulations! Let's hope the film will make it to the European filmfestivals as well so we can all see it.

Greetings from Amsterdam!

Can't WAIT to see it! (Many memories there for me--I was living in Berkeley in the '60s).

Congratulations, Kevin and Judy!
