Bart and I created a micro documentary for all of the kickstarter supporters of the World Domination Gardening DVDs. It is animation rich, and a very polished, professional creation. This is short film about hugelkultur. Topics covered include:

• How to shape your landscape to be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
• Encouraging diversity inside the hugelkultur as well as outside.
Organic vs. Permaculture
• While the full 3-DVD set is for urban gardeners as well as people with acreage, and the full 3-DVD set will contain far more information on hugelkultur, this micro documentary will be focused on gardening and have no focus on projects with larger acreage.




Here is an overhead view of the hugelkultur beds after we shaped them into a sun scoop.



Talking about how to shape your hugelkultur beds.

Kate,

Are you saying that you "bought" the micro doc? From scubbly or via kickstarter?

What is your operating system?

Kate, I had the same problem, but when I opened it with VLC video player, it worked flawlessly. I'd either try that FREE player or try something else.

Loved the video. Jealous of the clay content and organic matter in the soil in both California and Montana. I live on an acidic sand bar called Florida!

LOVED seeing the shots of wheaton laboratories!!! Fantastic and actually quite thrilling.

I'll +1 what was said earlier about using VLC to play videos.
Other players like QuickTime and Windows Media Player are unpredictable, but VLC plays every kind of video on all platforms - Mac, Windows, and even Linux.

It's a good audio player, too. It plays audio formats that iTunes et al don't understand.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the microdoc on hugel kultur.

Unfortunately, I had the same problem as another poster. I'm on a recent Mac and the latest operating system.

The video is jittery and and has no sound when played in Quicktime Player.

Would you be willing to re-encode if indeed this is the case for everyone trying to use quicktime player?

Whty the need to download another video player for what should be easy compatibility with Quicktime as an mp4?

Thank you!

Chris

Thanks Kate, I have VLC and produce videos!

I'm just suggesting to make it easier for permies and scubbly in the future.

They'll keep getting inquiries every time somebody tries to download and play with a common setup.

And of course, I don't want to have to re-encode it to play on my iPad.

I am able to duplicate the problem on my end.

This is a file that I created - so it's my fault. Since Bart is the expert in this space, I've asked Bart if he can send me a better file for downloading. Hopefully he will get me something this morning.

Most of my struggles are currently with file transfer. It takes a very long time for me to upload. And the connection is just spotty enough to make it take 10 times longer. We are looking into better internet.

Awesome !!! Loved it, thought it was funny that our hugel beds look a lot the same... I had been wondering about the lemon tree in Montana, I'm gonna try it here in WV, is there a specific type of lemon you are looking at trying or a kind you may be wondering about that I could try, I'm all for helping with the experiment....I have added a bed between the large and small hugels where i'll place the tree, hoping the heat will focus there in the winter, and be shaded enough not to burn it up in the summer...

Bought it with the affiliate link, PayPal sent me back here and the video was here and ready to watch! Watching with whatever player is on this thread, working fine, just slow buffering with my slow dsl lite internet. But, I can pause it, go make a glass of chocolate milk, come back and watch what has loaded! Then pause again and post this reply. Just a reminder, you may need to open PayPal in a new tab or whatever and be sure you are logged out. Great vid so far, Thanks, Bobby

Nice!

I can't praise The Duke any higher.

Because of Paul, my life is changed.  Don't really know how the affiliate link will help, but I think I got a plan...

I am about to start season two of my Boise Idaho Hugel Beds.  Am adding soil and mulch to fill in the holes from last year.  Last year voles got my melons.  This year I am committed to regular cut/chop/drop.

Thanks Paul, thanks Permies.

I see 4 images and only the last one seems to link to something downloadable - a 16 min file.

I just want to confirm that there is only that one 16min file to download.

Thanks!

Uhh ....    I have no idea.

When you watch a movie on netflix, how many streams is that?

I don't watch netflix, so I don't know.

Same question, asked differently - does each of the 4 images in the first post relate to a stream?

How long is the microdoc?

Thanks!
