When he is not wielding his megaphone at shooting locations, we know director James Cameron prefers to be at the helm of affairs of his own farming spaces in New Zealand. He doesn’t want to limit himself to just that. We now hear Cameron’s Santa Barbara Hollister Ranch is building a new mini-farm.
The new biodynamic farm that’s being cultivated is impressive by any standard. It all started after the director and his wife watched the 2011 documentary titled Forks Over Knives. The show in fact prompted the director and family to go vegan. A plant-based diet is what Cameron loves now.
Cameron then thought of growing a garden for the family so that they can cultivate their own food. And following such a decision, the family shunned anything that came from animal and heldf on to plant based food.
The new mini farm, which has more than 150 crops and 15 fruit trees, currently is enough to provide around 90 percent of the food for the family, according to a report. Cameron also took the help of garden consultant Paul Hudak to go about in his mini farm building excercise.
According to the director, changing what is being consumed as food “can change the contract between the human species and the natural world.”
