Wow! to put it mildy.

Really liked how there is no exact definition of hippie or what a back to the gardener should be...

So many great 'ending lines' each followed by a new one that was just as good, if not better, then ending on 'Some people are waiting for the golden age to come... I've been living it for 30+years ....I didn't want to wait.' Christina and I looked at each other and said "YES! Us Too!"

great to know we're not alone. What a joy to get into my "peers' hearts and minds and lives...

thanks so much for sharing your love with the world and with us...with great love and appreciation,

I watched "Back to the Garden" last night and absolutely LOVED the film! What a fantastic, important and timely collection of stories spanning the course of 20 years... which offers incredible insight into the lives and lifestyles of these amazing people.

Really got me thinking and done with great humility. These folks have not chosen an easy path but one filled with love, integrity and a connection and devotion to each other and to Mother Earth...THANK YOU!

I attended a showing at the Lynnwood Theatre on Bainbridge when you were there. It really brought back happy but bittersweet memories of my own Back to the Garden experiences. While I was in college, I lived at Tolstoy Farm near Davenport for a while and taught the school. After college, I bought land near Colville and started my own farm. I've been to the Tonasket Barter Faire but more often participated in the NE Washington one near Northport/Waneta. We used to press and sell fresh apple juice there from our orchard trees. I also attended some of the Healing Gatherings/Antakarana Circles near Curlew. During the film, I kept looking at Skeeter - sure that I knew him. During the chat after the showing, someone mentioned his name -Michael Pilarsky - so I knew I had met him... Now I live in Poulsbo. But I have never failed to grow my own fruits and vegetables and keep the spirit of the Garden alive. Thank you for a wonderful film.

Thank you so much for the film, I really enjoyed it! It really made me think about the path I've taken. I learned about the film online...in the comment section of a story in the Huffington Post. My neighbors back in Evergreen, Colorado would love your film.

I found your film very moving. I lived in the Methow from '77 to '86, most of the time on some remote land in a small yurt I built. Even though I did not know most of the people in the film, they seemed similar to people I did know there. The landscape is as inspiring to me now as it was then. I have tried to live as gentle a life as possible since that time, in a "helping" profession, gardening, living pretty simply. I hope the film gives some people a nudge in a different direction and gives other people encouragement to stay on their present path. Thank you...

I missed the showings during the Seattle International Film Festival, but a Seattle Film Institute student was thoroughly enthralled when you showed it there recently. And he is an 18-yr-old trust-fund-brat... so you have a real impact. I am not surprised. Loved Postcards. Anxious for Greenaway. -- rer

"Back to the Garden" is a very real glimpse into the lives of some very real and fascinating, people. Anyone who sees this couldn’t help but question how authentic and true his/her own life is, and that’s a question the world could use more of...a beautiful film visually.

Great film. I attended the Healing Gatherings from ‘87 to ‘91, also ‘94 and have been to 12 Barter Faires, ‘86 to ‘10 range. I’m in the film briefly as a young long haired guy blissed out dancing. Who would’a thought. Not sure but mail to One Pine might be possible through the Okanogan River Co-Op (a woman asked about that elsewhere). Google it for address. The Co-Op is way solid, no doubt has had a lot to do with the community’s longevity.

The Okanogan Barter Faires still happen, just go back from it, rained a bit, could’a used more people with $$ and trade items. A tad noisy on Friday night, what with the drums and youngsters getting their ya-ya’s out but I’m always glad I went. Yes friends, you too can enjoy this unique experience, it’s not too late! I bought some absolutely righteous herbal skin ointment from One Pine. Original formula, in recycled baby food jars.

This was a really well-made film. It was thought-provoking and had a wonderful cast of fascinating and diverse personalities. It was really interesting to see how their lives unfolded over the 20 or so years and where they ended up. Even Microsoft :-))

Great Job!!

"Marcia and I just saw BACK TO THE GARDEN today. We were so impressed, words can't do our feelings justice. Marcia's statement when we got back in the car said it best. "I needed to see that movie. I feel so much more centered". You didn't do a good job on this movie Kev, you did a GREAT job!"
