Abundant Land is a one-hour documentary about a Hawaiian community on Moloka’i opposing the biotech industry’s use of the island to test genetically engineered seeds. Agrochemical biotech corporations, including Monsanto and Mycogen Seeds, are depleting Moloka’i’s topsoil and fresh water while contributing to dust storms that spread pesticides into the ocean and surrounding communities.

From initial grassroots efforts that give rise to organized actions, Moloka’i residents learn permaculture techniques to restore an integrated food system based on ancient Hawaiian farming practices.
