Permaculture helps people turn wastelands into food forests.

Bill Mollison - Global Gardener Series 1-4

112 minutes

Bill Mollison is a practical visionary. For nearly two decades he has traveled the globe spreading the word about permaculture, the method of sustainable agriculture that he devised. Permaculture weaves together microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management and human needs into intricately connected productive communities. Mollison has proved that even in the most difficult conditions permaculture empowers people to turn wastelands into food forests.

GLOBAL GARDENER is a series of four half-hour programs on one tape. Each episode looks at examples in different bioregions:

---
IN THE TROPICS - Mollison introduces the basic principles, and shows results in Australia, India, and Zimbabwe.

There is just 1 struggle and it is now, here on this planet and on a personal level....meaning you only.
There is no enemy you can attack except yourself.
If you are busy attacking something else, you are wasting precious energy and you will fail.
If you succeed, there will be no struggle anymore.

Bill Mollison - In Grave Danger of Falling Food

Bill Mollison, Australian designer and author, thinks the greatest threat to our planet is agriculture. He maintains that modern agricultural practices are destroying our soil and water and produce increasingly poisonous food. His alternative is the 'permaculture' concept which turns even the smallest city garden into a fertile eco-system that can provide most of the food for an average family.

In This introductory video to Permaculture, Bill Mollison, the movements co-founder, takes the viewer through the history and developments of the movement. With startlingly laconic humor and insight he deconstructs the modern agribusiness and the 'modern plague' : manicured ornamental lawns. In this video he offers an antidote, which is an anti-dote, which is an antidote to both our currently unsustainable practices AND our unsustainable culture. Both of these have to change, to adapt. Permanently. Heres how...

Farming with Nature - A Case Study of Successful Temperate Permaculture

Video: (37 minutes)

How an Austrian farmer simply observes nature and survives without depending on subsidies, chemical fertilisers or pesticides of any kind.

Sepp Holzer created an edible landscape at 1500 metres above sea level - one of the few perfectly working permaculture systems in Europe.

Between the pinetree monocultures of Austria he built a fishpond system with his own water power station, planted 9000 fruit trees of the most various kinds in connection with many other plants to support each other (plant families). Thirty different types of potatoes, many different grains, fruits, vegetables, herbs and wildflowers are growing just about everywhere - in the forest, on extremely steep hills, on rocky soil, on pathways, around ponds, as well as raised beds. All of this he grows without the use of any pesticides, herbicides or fertilizer. Holzer says: "I couldn't understand that still everybody at the agricultural schools told you these chemicals are useful. They drowned us in brochures of the chemical fertilizers with the latest information on how many kilos of which stuff you should get. But if you follow their instructions you only have trouble, your purse is empty, you have a lot of hard work to do, and you're destroying all this important life in your ground, and your own health with it. Sorry, but I really don't want to spoil my own land with this poison!"

Instead of using chemicals, he simply observes nature and finds out which plants support each other. In autumn he collects many seeds and stores them, and whenever he can, he throws this seed mixture on his ground. Along pathways, on new patches of terraces, anywhere. There is no square meter of ground with only one type of plant. All plants grow together and support each other. No plant or insect is unwanted. Diversity is a key word for Holzer, not only on the level of plants but also on the economic level. Holzer now has a lot of different sources of income. He sells all the products of his land; fruit trees, fruits, grains, vegetables, fish, and mushrooms, all guaranteed biological. Further, he sells seeds of many of these plants including very rare ones. Next to that, Holzer gives advice to farmers who want to change their farms into permaculture places or people who want to build up a permaculture garden. Sepp also gives guided tours over his own property to interested people, who have a growing interest in permaculture. He also gives seminars on old techniques such as grinding your own grains, making your own bread and butter etc. He also rents out his mountain huts for people who want to spend time in nature as a holiday. So it looks like Holzer will never be short of ideas, his economic success is an exception in the whole area.

Most farmers in Europe are completely dependent on subsidies. The EU supports farmers, especially in disadvantaged regions in order to keep the cultivation of the land alive. The price is high: 54.3 % of the EU expenses (=41 billion ECU) are flowing into agriculture! 1997 it was 80 billion DM (even though the farmers are only 4.4 % of the working population).

Sepp Holzer: "I find it painful to watch all these farmers going broke and selling their land for next to nothing, mostly to rich academic people who know even less what to do with the land. If these farmers only knew what they could do with their land! Nature has so much to offer, so many possibilities!"

Forest Gardening with Robert Hart

Both informative and inspiring, this video features Robert Hart in his pioneering Shropshire garden, explaining the principles and practice of forest gardening; Ken Fern of Plants for a Future, who grows 1500 species of useful perennial plants on a windy plot in Cornwall; and Mike and Julia Guerra who have created a tiny garden behind their maisonette in Hertfordshire, using permaculture,forest gardening and organic principles. For as little as two hours work a week, they can supply produce for six months of the year.

I have taken the liberty to upload the latest video uploaded by diinero to google video.

Emilia Hazelip - Synergistic Garden <-- link to google video (stil processing as I add this reply)

Quote:Video codec: XviD
Resolution: 720x480
Audio codec: mp3 128kbps
Duration: 0:29:25

An educational video on no-till synergistic gardening that describes the step-by-step processes developed by Emilia Hazelip to
create an ecological agriculture. She became interested in Fukuoka's work in 1977 and this video shows the cultural and
climatological adaptations she has developed in the course of years of research.

A synergistic garden is an ecosystem that is consciously designed to allow all the dynamic life forms present in a wild soil to
remain present while still growing crops (on whatever scale). It is that simple. But that's not the view commonly held in the sphere
of science or in the politics of agribusiness which rule France. Emilia exclaims passionately: "The living world is not understood
by the technician, and since it is not understood, it is not studied for its diversity. People always want to apply mechanical laws to it..."

Very practical, highly recommended

Very impressive video from 1995, many thanks for the upload!
