Stoke Climsland, Cornwall.

Various shots of Stoke Climsland, where local rector Canon Andrews started up a co-operative farm to help unemployed in the area four years previously. M/S of Canon Andrews with his dogs. We see geese or ducks running through the farm get to their food. Women sit outside plucking chickens and ducks.

Men work in greenhouses, where tomatoes and bulbs are cultivated. Women and men work together to make bouquets of flowers. M/S of men walking past a table - picking up their wages? Farm goods are loaded onto a trailer, driven off through the gates by Canon Andrew.
