This 30-minute documentary focuses on Permaculture and Organic Farming in South Africa and what it can do to transform society at a grass roots level, to create sustainable lives for individuals, communities and South Africa as a whole.
The documentary aims to educate the youth of SA on the importance of food security and introduces a holistic approach to utilize our countries abundant, yet often neglected and ignored, natural resources and natural wealth. Our hope is to reawaken a culture of working the land that has been lost, and present common sense alternatives to complement the current development paradigm and mobilize the youth to create a new world.
It is an informative yet entertaining piece, leaving the viewer motivated and aware of their positive potential and the resources available to all South Africans regardless of their background or location to empower themselves to a better life. It provides an introduction to the practices and attitudes of a particular approach to gardening and sustainability that is known as permaculture. The word permaculture is a combination of the words permanent and agriculture. Unpacking a set of practices and attitudes that make gardening or agriculture more permanent or sustainable and help to create wealth. It includes skills that are easy to learn and can make a big difference to everyones quality of life.
Permaculture is an internationally successful proven approach to designing sustainable systems. Its adaptability and emphasis on meeting human needs means that it can be utilized in every climatic and cultural zone. Permaculture is about:
•Working with Nature rather than against it
•Seeing solutions not problems
•Co-operation, not competition
•Bringing food and medicinal production back to our communities
•Energy efficiency & moving towards zero waste
•Reforestation of the earth & allowing for wild places to exist & thrive
•Community-building and people care
Permaculture is an optimistic, action-oriented approach to the environmental, energy, food, water and climate crisis the world is currently facing It focuses on the small solutions that we can implement now, to save the earth & ourselves.
The filming and editing style, presenters and people interviewed are funky and hip making the show both entertaining and credible to the youth. The aim is to make self-sufficiency accessible to all, and motivate South Africans to take charge of our collective future.
