So I'm doing these movie showings all over the county about this Austrian dude, Sepp Holzer, I think you've heard of him....

anyway. A lot of folks here don't even know what permaculture is, so if I'm at a place with wifi, I've been mixing it up a little.

I was looking for short clips of 5 min. or less that are fairly fast-moving. I worried that Sepp's stuff, though awesome, can be a little slow. So this method has been working well,

I've also thrown in

Anyone have more suggestions?

These are awesome, Kelda, thanks for sharing! What I think has huge value, but it's likely too much for a Sepp movie night, is "The Man Who Planted Trees." It's on the web at: The Man Who Planted Trees.

The success of these movie showings has spurned another idea, for after Sepp leaves, why not get-togethers where we geek out on all the cool youtube clips about a various topic, and then talk excitedly, and then do something.

It's perfect for this community because quite a bit of education about topics really helps it along.

Themes:
Urban Homesteading
with something like this:

Save Yo'Self Money with Natural Buiding
with something like this:

etc.

More ideas?
I've been talking with one guy who's gotten totally fired up about permaculture, first from a little direction by me, but mostly through all of the awesome youtube flicks he's been finding.

If it's working for him, then others will find it too.
