Thanks for posting.

Lots of good info in here. The main message of build soil, don't mine it.

No mention of permaculture though. Still lots of big mono crops.

Beautifully filmed with attention to the right details. The scene where you can very clearly see the mushroom mycillia eating rocks is great. Everyone should watch it.

The scene with the dog in the potato field had a nice example of polyculture.

Sure is a good video, got me excited. Really well done, much like Food Inc. and some of the other bigger ecological minded documentaries.

Definitely big farming focused, but still brings the broader audience a step closer to the good side.

Very impressive.

While I would love to see more of a permaculture version, if the large evil monoculture farms were all doing this permaculture wouldn't be necessary or even as attractive as it is.

Permies don't need to see this film though it is fun, instructional and backs our knowledge, it's the big monoculture farms/companies that need the movie and need to understand the message.

 
I found a beautiful pie. And a tiny ad:
