    I catch myself smiling and being only halfway into the film, I see this new future that feels more tangible than ever before. Thank you for sharing this documentary. The unity and togetherness of it all, the conscious action towards Earth, and the underlying levels of hope and perservernce to creating a regenerative lifestyle – it’s beyond inspiring !

    Everyone should watch this!! It is currently free to watch due to the COVID-19 situation so you should definitely watch this! Also, they are planning to create a second film on an Indigenous perspective!

    That was the shortest documentary I have ever seen but with such a big impact on your thoughts and senses. It almost made me cry realizing how badly we ruin this beautiful planet for selfish purposes.
    We need Permaculture like the salt in the food or water in the desert.
    I’m so happy I found a solution for fixing this problem and maybe making a better world, a more liveable and happy world starting with me, my family, my friends and so on… β™₯️

    I really liked how they talked about needing different kinds of currency and how currency is just an exchange of energy.
    People have been asking me what permaculture is and sometimes i feel like i’m stumbling over explaining it, mostly because its not just one thing, its so multi-dimentional. i shared this video so i can maybe share the interest with others and i certainly hope it will pique the interest of others to look into permaculture methods.
    And i cant wait to, not only utilize what im learning for my own family’s benefit, but to help other who might be open to something that they didn’t even know was out there.

    I have a friend who works in agricultural farming, he’s an agricultural pilot and I remember hanging out in the tractors with him back in the day, I really want to send him the Restoration Agriculture book in hopes that maybe they’ll change the way they look at farming.

    What a great documentary. I love how each person in the documentary focuses on educating others. This isn’t just about us learning how to bring permaculture into our lives, its about spreading that information and educating others. It also made me think, wouldn’t it be dreamy to live in a physical community or city built around permaculture ideals, instead of just a single dwelling. do you think that would be possible?

    What an amazing documentary this is! Thank you so much for introducing us to it Bret. Right now because of the Virus they are steaming it for free. But, I bought it so that I can have it to watch later and continue to enjoy and as a way to pay back to them.

    I loved this documentary, thank you Bret! It was so inspiring to see how others around the world are using Permaculture. The message it left me with is that the earth doesn’t actually need us to survive but we need the earth the survive. Crops will continue to grow for thousands of years without any input from humans. I’m already middle aged but it doesn’t matter. If I chip away at learning the foundations of Permaculture and applying it in my life, I am being a true custodian of this land.

    I was able to watch the full video and like typical, the more knowledge I have the more questions I have. What type of wood was Steve Gabriel growing mushrooms on and is it the only type? Does it need to be under the forest cover to work? How and what do you do to start the plants?
    Where can I find the Documentary Green Gold?
    What was in Michael Phillips spray for his trees and what is the purpose?
    Any idea on where to find more information on the Frank White Neighborhood garden that Paula Amram and Ari Rosenburg spoke about? I have found quite a bit about the ideas of gardens in children’s spaces but am having difficulty in having it be more permiculture in nature and meeting the needs/requirements of childcare licensing.
    What was the name (spelling) of the author that Susana Kay Lein spoke about? I can not seem to figure out how to spell it.
    Thank you, this one was awesome!

      Angela – so many good Questions!

      I will answer the ones I can off the top of my head here:

      Mushrooms often do need forest cover / partial shad to grow. More on mushrooms will come in a later lesson!

      Here is the Green Gold documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBLZmwlPa8A

      The rest I will post up as I get the answers.

        Thanks for the link to Green Gold. I like to see how the people doing the restoration projects will involve the local people, showing them how they will personally benefit. Demonstrating the ethic of people care.

    Loved it! Makes you want to go get a piece of land and some animal and start. I guess it’s good that garden was step one, so I can hold my horses, until the end of the class.

    Brings me to tears of joy!

      I know Billie! There is seriously something moving in this. At a deeper level those of us that are awakening to the state of the world and how humanity’s existence (maybe even in the short term) is dependent on everything that is possible with permaculture. They really did an incredible job with this Documentary!

    Is it really worth it to buy the documentary or is it better to simply rent it? I see that many of the documentaries and recommended reading materials are for purchase so I am attempting to tabulate. I am totally willing to buy if it is something that I will be likely to reference several times going forward but if it’s a one and done kind of thing, I’d like to be privy to that as well. πŸ™‚
    Thanks a million!

      Hey Mariah,

      Any of the recommended materials are all things that in my opinion are worth the money (and if I don’t recommend it then either I haven’t read/watched it or felt it wasn’t the best option). Inhabit is a fantastic documentary that I personally have watched a number of times and come back to as a reminder as to WHY we are trying to live the life we are living. It’s one I share with friends who are interested in but not yet ready to dive into permaculture. Hope that helps you make a decision πŸ™‚
