I have watched this DVD years ago and it was one of the main reasons why I have decided to take my second PDC course with Geoff. In less than one and a half hour Geoff goes through probably all chapters of Mollison's Permaculture Designer's Manual. And he does that with passion, style and enormous confidence, just flooding our brains with permaculture knowledge.
He starts with three ethics, goes through concepts and themes of the design, talks about diversity and stacking in time. He shows us exaple of succession. He shows methods of design - analysis of elements with the famous permaculturechicken and he talks about importance of observation.
Then he walks us through zones, using great exaple of a live farm, talks about slope, orientation and sector analysis.
Next, we acquaint with patterns and edge effects, we admire banana circle and swales, with a hint of aquaculture.
We go briefly through three major climates, food forestry, trees, water and soils, including wormeries and composting methods.
Finally, we see some earthworks and we end up with strategies for the alternative global nation, so basically we have just seen permaculture in a nutshell (like in a famous little book of Patrick Whitefield).
This is fantastic introduction to permaculture, I strongly reccomend it to everyone.
