Permaculture is a design lens that uses the principles found in ecosystems to help shift our impact from destructive to regenerative. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes. DVD Includes Feature Film (92Mins) + 7 Extra Scenes (60Mins). Subtitled in English/French/Spanish

I give this movie 10 out of 10 acorns.

Last Thursday there was the first screening of INHABIT in Warsaw, Poland. It was a part of the film festival that ends the campaing of Polish Green Network "Climate for farmers" - educating farmers about climate change, regenerative agriculture and permaculture. After the film I had a chance to discuss permaculture with the audience, great event!

Now to the review - this is an excellent movie, a very very positive. You can see permaculture and its practitioners in action in all settings, from urban, through suburban, to rural. They address real problems with permaculture solutions and it is obvious that they are successful. The movie shows great quality of permaculture life and brings hope to those who are looking for ways to improve theirs. I strongly recommend this film as introduction to permaculture for general audience.

We are now planning screening of Inhabit at The Festival of Science in the city of Skierniewice in May.

I wish we had Inhabit 2 - same concept, but filmed in various locations around the World.

I give Inhabit 9 out of 10 acorns! This is an awesome film to help initiate the uninformed into the world of Permaculture. Visually it is just awesome, the perspectives are well rounded and very non-offensive. It's been great to have as a tool to infect brains with the permaculture bug!
If you're gonna buy things, buy this thing and I get a fat kickback:
