Permaculture is the design of a sustainable way of living. Using principles inspired by nature, it aims to maximize productivity while minimizing energy inputs and environmental impacts. The principles apply not only to gardening and agriculture but also to communities, businesses and other areas of life. This inspiring DVD shows permaculture in practice in four very different settings: * A back garden in Hampshire, with fruit trees, vegetables, bees and poultry. * A City Challenge project in Bradford near a large housing estate, where small-scale food production is practised against a background of unemployment. * A community co-op in Devon, with a cafe, allotments and local composting scheme. * A small farm in the Forest of Dean, producing meat, vegetables and charcoal, where innovative marketing ensures a close link with consumers.
