Seeds of Permaculture

If it's beautiful, it's better

An interactive documentary about permaculture in the tropics. Set against a beautiful Thai backdrop, the film takes a look at two permaculture education centers where visitors from all over the world come to educate themselves to be self-sufficient, produce no waste, build their homes, gardens but most of all they learn to build communities.

Christian Shearer (founder of WeTheTrees and the Panya Project) guides the film through the philosophy of permaculture and a number of tropical strategies to help bring health and resilience to the permaculture farm.

This film was made to help bring permaculture to people around the world and inspire a course of action towards a holistic lifestyle.

"Seeds of Permaculture" is available to the world for free! That means it can also be screened for free and lots of people already took it upon themselves to organize a screening at their local venues.
