Permaculture in Practice (DVD)

This DVD, whose aim is to inspire people to start their own permaculture projects, shows how permaculture is practiced in four very different settings: a Hampshire back garden belonging to the editors of Permaculture Magazine, including fruit trees, vegetables, bees, chickens, and ducks; a City Challenge project in Bradford close to a housing estate with 10,000 residents, tackling the problems of unemployment, environmental awareness, and backyard food growing; a community co-op in Devon, which involves a café, allotments, and local composting scheme; and a small farm in the Forest of Dean where innovative marketing schemes ensure a close link between producer and consumer, including meat production, a vegetable box scheme, and locally produced charcoal.


NotAPhysicist says:

reasonable overview Not an in depth documentary, not a how to documentary, but very accessible for most people interested in permaculture. Useful for anyone trying to involve others in permaculture or explaining some aspects of it to them.

Iconoclast says:

Dated DVD It tells describe some principle of permaculture. It’s a little boring side of documentary film. I didn’t learn much what I didn’t know already. It showed several farms and businesses employing the permaculture. I was looking for more hands-on instead of general broad information.
