Pick of the Week: A Bumper Crop

Easthampton’s Touchstone Farm grows more than vegetables. This multi-faceted entity has sprouted a vibrant community, which has grown up around the farm’s recording studio, meditation garden, Sacred Circle dances and celebrations. Likewise, seeds for an eco-village on the farm have been sown.
Filmmakers D.S. Fine and Rebecca Rideout have harvested the history and flowering of Touchstone Farm in a new documentary that premiers this week at the Academy of Music. Rideout and Fine use music recorded at the farm as the soundtrack to interviews and footage from Touchstone community members. The premier of Touchstone opens with music from several musicians featured in the film.

 May 16, 7 p.m., Academy of Music, 274 Main St., Northampton, $10-20/suggested donation, (413) 584-8435.
