Hey everyone! I sometimes edit videos (kind of video collages) to share with people both personally & online and was wondering if people could share either directly or help direct me to places and people that openly share their media copyright free. I use them to spread permaculture and teach people all about our natural path and potential when symbiotically connecting directly to the natural system we truly live in/on. LOVE and THANKS!
If you're not creating the videos for commercial use (i.e. making money from it) you can easily obtain cheap media from media outlets or individuals, or also for free from individuals who would be happy to share for educational, non-commercial purposes
Seriously great free resource that gives practical permaculture tips, as well as the basics of permaculture, in a way even total novices can understand. Lots of good pictures and illustrations. I found this manual invaluable when I encountered it.
It's free, and was written to teach farmers in the Himalayans how to farm in a permaculture way, with few resources.
Remember that it's best practice to give author credit even with public domain works.

THANKS for all the responses! I will check those links and resources out. Just f.y.i., it's never for money and only permaculture and earth would profit from this. If anyone else knows of specific people or media that might be good for this I would appreciate it.
If you would like to add still images to your videos, the 2 best ways I've found to search for license free images are as follows:
1. Go to Google.com, type in your search term (eg. "permaculture") & press enter,
Under the search bar, select "Images" to get an images-only google search result,
Near "Images" you'll find a "Tools" menu; click on that,
Now more previously hidden menu items will appear; choose the "Usage rights" twirl down menu,
Select "Labeled for reuse" & press enter... Voilà!
