IN GRAVE DANGER OF FALLING FOOD
This film tells the permaculture story with verve and imagination. Watch Bill Mollison loping through Australian suburbs, planting hazelnuts guerilla fashion. Permaculture is a bit of everything. To some people it is architecture, to others, organic farming; some say it is a philosophy and a way of life, others believe it is their only hope. Permaculture is a design system, but the engineering principles it follows are those of life. Bill Mollison looks at the natural processes of the Earth as a system that is stable and fertile, yet becomes ever more complex. He believes our human environment should be brought back to this state. In this film, he shares his deep understanding of nature and how a stable permaculture system can supply all our needs while we embrace and enrich nature. He says permaculture will work anywhere. All you have to do is plant. Permaculture is a connecting system involving many different disciplines: agriculture, architecture, power supply, and more. You can grow a garden in a few weeks that will grow you vegetables and timber for your whole life.
