After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues. None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul's gardens and orchards. "Back to Eden" invites you to take a walk with Paul as he teaches you sustainable organic growing methods that are capable of being implemented in diverse climates around the world.Written by

Since viewing this film several weeks ago, I went on a quest to find all the mulch I could get my hands on. I've loaded a trailer full about 6 times so far and plan on getting a lot more. Since laying the mulch in my existing garden (30x30')I have watered my garden once. I had neglected my garden up to that point, simply because I couldn't keep up with the weeds and losses due to rodents digging up my plants and burying others. Since putting down the mulch, my burrowing rodent problem has ceased. I still have to deal with rabbits nibbling at the plants, but the voles and gophers really hate the mulch and stay away. The plants that lived through the neglect are thriving in the mulch and I have been able to harvest some crop even though I thought it was all lost a month ago.
I wish I had learned of this 12 years ago. I finally feel like my garden is a success, and it's actually easier than it's ever been. I am so excited to have a garden that will be planted 'the correct way' from the start next year.
I have shared the film with many others, some of them have shared it with their gardening groups. I think everyone should watch it and see if it's 'for them.' As far as the spiritual aspect, the way it was presented really helped me to put it in perspective. And I'm not very religious.
