I just got the DVD and was so full of joy watching my ole friends. I was part of the festivals in the Tonasket area and still am since the early 80's. I now live in a small wonderful town in Hot Springs Montana. Even though its a town there is a core of hippies here having visions of how we can make a future where we are sharing and caring for each other. We are starting to meet to see how we can grow food together. To make our life better for our children and our selves. We're thinking of having a circus one of these days. We already have a Harvest festival in the Summer. Besides our wonderful healing hot springs we're thinking of different ways to get together to improve our quality of life.

Ordered the DVD from the library, having no idea what it was about - what a nice surprise, since I live in the Methow Valley to recognize so many of the people in the movie. It was a moving film. My family and I enjoyed it very much

Kevin, Shared your film with my family yesterday and the kids' dad liked it so much he wants to order a copy. I sent him the link so he can order online. The kids had lots of laughs and said it was great to learn they weren't alone!...that there are lots of "grown hippie kids" out there!

As i watched your film, i was transported back to the marvelous time i spent with my dad in our wondrous back yard in the heart of Brooklyn. dad grew up on a farm and translated the knowledge he gained as a boy into his home in the city. he loved nature, and animals and would never even swat a mosquito because it represented life. he was a hippie much like the personages in the film, only he predated them by many years.

he thought, he wrote, and envisioned a world where people lived together in harmony.

films, like all art, can measure their success by the impressions that are created in the minds of those who view, read, or listen. judging by my own experience, you have a winner.

a unique documentary that kept me absorbed in it from start to finish. Unlike most choppy, formula documentaries, "Back to the Garden" flowed beautifully, with a perfect musical score and gorgeous cinematography. This film left me moved by both the people whose lives it explored and their views re: the direction the world should be taking.

...curious as to the next chapter and I certainly hope there is one.

Thanks so much for creating this film. I experienced a lot of joy watching it. It trigggered some past memories that I had long forgotten and appreciated reliving. The scenes in the film especially resonated with my deep love and respect for this planet earth. "Back to the Garden " is another piece in the homespun patchwork quilt of healing our friend and sustainer Mother Earth.

For me, 'Back to the Garden' is the best home movie I could ever hope to see. I am so grateful for my life...rare in this century. Not just back to the land, but back to the heart. It was and still is a life-affirming culture. To have that experience was healthy in all ways.

To be in a tribe in this modern age is unique and a gift to our children.

Thanks, Kevin, for sharing us with a culture full of holes.

Kudo's to all you good folks who kept the dream and vision of a better world alive and cookin'.

To each their own part... the whole is then blessed by it.
