Just saw the movie "Biggest Little Farm. I highly recommend it. It was interesting to see the learning process and the lessons learned, all without being preachy . This is a good film to help the general public gain an understanding permaculture and how the whole picture should work. So if it comes to your area go see it and take a non-believer with you.

I am traveling and found myself with a free night in a city where it is still playing.
I really enjoyed it, it is indeed a good intro to what many of us are trying to do. It was really remarkable for the film work, I am assuming that the guy (saw it last night and already forgot their names. I`m not good with media stuff!) was in charge of the filming, as in his pre-farm career he worked with nature films. I thought it was really refreshing in an artistic way, since there were none of the "stock shots" you would expect from a movie about a family living on a farm (we never once saw a barn, and only what, once inside the farmhouse), it was all out on the land, staking out the owls, coyotes, etc. So beautiful.

The only negative I can report is that as a permie-farm type I kept wanting them to WAIT STOP I WANT TO SEE HOW HE MADE THAT BLUEBERRY FENCING! Hang on, show me more details about that worm compost thing. Where can I find a list of those 75 fruit tree varieties? I haven`t yet stalked their website but hope to get more info, since I`m always looking for other people`s ideas to apply to my farm (and save me work).
