The best permaculture film I've ever seen
20 September 2014 | by jmsinnzSee all my reviews

This is the best permaculture film I've ever seen, both from a content and film quality perspective. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in designing a permaculture orchard or food forest, whether for commercial or private use.

Stefan recognises the limitations of the organic model as a substitute to conventional fruit growing, and proposes a more holistic, regenerative approach based on permaculture principles. Based on 20 years of applied theory and trial and error, biologist and educator Stefan Sobkowiak shares his experience of transforming a conventional apple orchard into an abundance of biodiversity that virtually takes care of itself. The concepts, techniques and tips presented in this film will help you with your own project, whether it is just a few fruit trees in your urban backyard, or a full-scale multi-acre commercial orchard.

This is the how-to film for creating your own commercial scale permaculture orchard. Stefan Sobkowiak brings a wonderfully personable approach to this film, and will make you smile from time to time as he goes through oooodles of practical information, presented clearly, in a way that can only come from direct experience.
