SYNOPSIS: The drive to cultivate the land has always been an aspect of every culture – it is one of the most important ancient connections between humankind and nature. It means to explore the bounty offered by Mother Nature, and at the same time, her challenges of forcing us to adapt to the changing seasons and to the biological characteristic of plants. For the Italian immigrants in Canada, to cultivate the land is not only part of the culture, but reminiscent of their native land. A true passion that never dies.
In this documentary, we will follow nine fervent gardeners. We will witness their delicate process of planting and caring for their garden, and more importantly, we will see if they are truly satisfied with their harvest at the end of the season. These are Stories from the Garden.
