I am looking for a good free Permaculture documentary (that we can watch online) as a way to introduce my wife to Permaculture.

It probably shouldn't be like the PDC i took and be lecture and lecture. Perhaps one about somehow transforming there home into a Pmc paradise...or there neighborhood...or there city...or...

Thanks for the suggestions!

Have you seen the four videos over at Geoff Lawton's site: http://www.geofflawton.com? Maybe the urban video is a good starting place, lots of permaculture concepts put together in a small space.

You will find it on youtube.

Her joy and excitement is catching.

It will be a very low pressure fun introduction to permaculture.

A Farm for the Future by Rebecca Hosking. Beautifully made, not too technical, and covers several important concepts.

http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/farm-for-the-future/

here is the promo from the site:

Wildlife film maker Rebecca Hosking investigates how to transform her family's farm in Devon into a low energy farm for the future, and discovers that nature holds the key.

With her father close to retirement, Rebecca returns to her family's wildlife-friendly farm in Devon, to become the next generation to farm the land. But last year's high fuel prices were a wake-up call for Rebecca. Realising that all food production in the UK is completely dependent on abundant cheap fossil fuel, particularly oil, she sets out to discover just how secure this oil supply is.

Alarmed by the answers, she explores ways of farming without using fossil fuel. With the help of pioneering farmers and growers, Rebecca learns that it is actually nature that holds the key to farming in a low-energy future. (Excerpt from bbc.co.uk)
