From Wasteland to Paradise: The Journey of Apricot Lane Farms

From Wasteland to Paradise: The Journey of Apricot Lane Farms

Filmmaker John Chester’s dream for Apricot Lane Farms began with a deep conviction. On April 12, 2011, John and his wife, Molly, set out to create a farm with a biological system capable of regenerating itself. The land was treated poorly in the past, with chemical spray killing almost all of the biodiversity and leaving the soil rock hard, dead. They made it their mission to return the area to its former glory.

In this week’s SuperSoul Original Short, filmmaker John Chester shares how they turned his dream for Apricot Lane Farms into a reality—and the unexpected turns they took along the way.
