Join our February online permaculture film club on February 20th, 2023. We will live stream GRACIE’S BACKYARD. Watch the trailer below:
Gracie’s Backyard is a documentary film about the “northernmost commercial permaculture farm on the planet”. Located at 59 degrees North near Sunne, Sweden, Ridgedale Permaculture is a 10-hectare farm, at the time this film was made, integrated pastured eggs, broiler chickens, market gardens, agro-forestry systems (and more!) into an enterprise that creates livelihoods while regenerating landscapes. Discover how Richard Perkins and his partner Yohanna Amselem managed to turn this abandoned farm into a vibrant place that is now part working farm, part education hub. The farm continues to thrive and evolve. Richard is a prolific educator, hosts courses at his farm and online, has written extensively in his book, Regenerative Agriculture and shares extensively on youtube.
Director: Olivier Asselin of Possible Media
7:00 – 8:30 pm AEST – perhaps a little longer if there are lots of questions 🙂
ABOUT OUR FREE MONTHLY FILM CLUB
Welcome to the Permaculture Education Institute’s monthly permaculture film club. We screen permaculture-related films on the third Monday of each month and host a global conversation inspired by the film. Make sure to subscribe below to our event’s portal here on Humanitix to hear immediately when we release a new event.
THIS IS PAY WHAT YOU CAN EVENT – WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MONEY?
While this is a free event, we warmly welcome your generous donation. We always send 100% of all donations received via our registered charity, Ethos Foundation. Any donation received from this event will go towards permaculture food forest nurseries and planting in East African refugee camps and locally-led classes to show youth how to set up and maintain a perennial food forest. People are living in these camps for decades – perennial food systems are so much more reliable, robust, and abundant, and help to fight the hunger and poverty experienced every day.
