Paul Gautschi Paul Gautschi ... Himself


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 Dana Richardson & Sarah Zentz

Great back to basics

What a great concept. While those of us that watched the film were a bit put off by all the bible references the basic information appears to be sound and easy to replicate.

Bottom line is to place a layer of newspaper for weed control, a few inches of good quality soil or compost go on next and the top layer is several inches of wood chips - in one case they added a top dressing of manure.

One area that was not addressed well was scaling this down to the average row-home/townhouse or urban setting. With so many folks looking to add a backyard 'Victory' garden or garden without the use of chemicals this is going to be a 'why didn't I think of that' moment after watching this film.
