Salmon Creek Farm Part Two: Futures

Fritz Haeg talks about his plans for the former commune

The second of a two-part film about Salmon Creek Farm; a 33-acre property in Northern California, originally established in 1971 as a commune and currently being revived by artist Fritz Haeg as a long-term project. In part one, three of Salmon Creek Farm's original communards tell the fascinating story of this rural colony, and their experiences as pioneers of alternative living in 1970s California. In this film, Haeg talks about his current work restoring the cabins, woods and orchard at Salmon Creek Farm, with the help of an informal community of artists, crafts-people, cooks, dancers, designers, farmers, gardeners, makers and writers. He reflects on the legacy of Salmon Creek Farm's past and his plans for its future.
