The strategy of crooked cucumbers

The strategy of crooked cucumbers

A co-op of some 260 people is participating in successful organic vegetable gardening in the southwest German city of Freiburg, sharing the costs and risks. Whatever the harvest, good or poor, it’s distributed to all members. Cucumbers are allowed to be bent, carrots entwined, the occasional lettuce smaller than average. Seasonal, totally organic growing, 100% original seed, short distances, solidary economics, collective property, education, contributing to the labour are some of the many hallmarks.
This documentary reveals the motivations and inner life of the cooperative. It shows people who in a time of economic and ecological crisis are doing something to counter the might of industrial agriculture: The strategy of bent cucumbers.
