After decades of writing and directing award-winning films (his biggest hits, “Titanic” and “Avatar”, are the two highest-grossing films of all time) James Cameron, along with his wife Suzy Amis Cameron, has switched to a plant-based diet and is enjoying the bounty of his 100 acre biodynamic farm in California.

Cameron and his family embraced a plant-based diet a year and a half ago after watching “Forks Over Knives,” a documentary which investigates the positive effects of veganism on health. “That’s really when the garden took off and we got serious about growing our own food,” Suzy Amis Cameron said. “We cut out anything that was coming from an animal and cleaned out our refrigerator in 24 hours.”

Today, the Camerons grow about 90% of the food they eat on the 100-acre coastal farm. They have an abundance of over 150 types of fruit and vegetables on the property, including arugula, Brussels sprouts, beets, carrots, lettuce, figs, peaches, plums, pomegranates and citron. Much of their agricultural success is due to the work of garden consultant Paul Hudak, who helped the Camerons map, plant and harvest their initial crops.

Hudak plants according to a biodynamic calendar, which means that fruits, vegetables and even flowers are planted according to lunar phases. He also prefers a traditional method of maintaining soil health, where “cover crops” are grown between seasons to put nutrients back into the soil. He said “It’s all about feeding the soil, not the plant.”
