Global Gardener Video Library

This post originally began as Bill Mollison's Global Gardener video series. I have since added other examples of people farming and gardening in a wide variety of climates. Some examples have been added to show how permaculture design and forest gardening techniques can be used to grow healthy, organic food under the most extreme conditions. Feel free to ignore the global warming, peak oil, and environmentalistic undertones taken in these videos.

Global Gardener
"Bill Mollison is a practical visionary. For nearly two decades he has traveled the globe spreading the word about permaculture, the method of sustainable agriculture that he devised. Permaculture weaves together microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management and human needs into intricately connected productive communities. Mollison has proved that even in the most difficult conditions permaculture empowers people to turn wastelands into food forests. Global Gardener is a series of four half-hour programs on one tape. Each episode looks at examples in different bioregions:"

ESTABLISHING A FOOD FOREST: The Permaculture Way Series - (2008)
"Join Geoff Lawton on a Permaculture adventure as he demonstrates how to grow a food forest from start to finish. Over 90 minutes of quality information to get you on the right track in creating your own garden of Eden.

We start with a 20 minute Permaculture Classroom as Geoff explains the patterns of a Food Forest and the essential principles of “time stacking” your garden with the right mix of support species that feed and protect your fledgling fruit trees into maturity. We then join Geoff in the field as he puts the theory into action, planting the seeds and watching the system grow.

We end up at Tagari Farm – established by Permaculture founding father, Bill Mollision – which was abandoned years ago, but planted according to Permaculture design principles. Would this Food Foest survive on its own? You’ll be surprised.

Elements covered in the DVD include: Forest Fundamentals, Legumes, Chop and Drop, Pests, Fungi, Nursery, Kitchen gardens, Swales, Hardwood, Mature systems, and much more ..."

3 Films: "Farming with Nature", "Aquaculture", "Terraces and Raised Beds - Sepp Holzer's Austrian permaculture films from Oko film.
Sepp Holzer narrates how he created a sustainable edible landscape on his 45 hectare mountain farm, 1500 m above sea level in the coldest region of Austria. Within the pinetree monocultures of Austria he has built the largest functioning permaculture farm in Europe. He has transformed marginal, erosion-prone mountain lands with poor, acidic soils into stable rich soils with greater biodiversity and productivity.

Farming with Nature - A Case Study of Successful Temperate Permaculture - An "overview of Sepp and Veronica Holzer's long-term application of Permaculture Design to terrace agriculture in a temperate climate."

Aquaculture - The Synergy of Land and Water - "Here, we see in greater detail the water management on the 45-hectare farm. It is explained through an intensely personal journey from Sepp's first interest in pisciculture at age seven and on later through the 40 years that he has boldly transformed a total of 3 hectares of the hillside to produce 70 interlinked ponds and wetland areas. Sepp farms fish and, in the way of all good animal husbandry, he observes and understands their behaviour, their nutritional and habitat needs, and the natural order that exists between predator fish (pike) and feeders (carp and trout). It's as though he constructs guilds of fish since the variety of species, and the colourful decoration from inclusion of Japanese carp, makes them the equivalent of an underwater flower garden. He eats the fish and also sells them to restaurants locally.

Fish farming is but one purpose from his water management. He generates power; uses collected water to extract and pump up drinking water; the water surfaces reflect the warmth of the sun, provide humidity and create microclimates; and water temperature is varied using large boulders as heat sinks or through water movement from deep or shallow ponds elsewhere. But there is more than function: each water element is carefully located in the landscape, is provided with a variety of niches and aquatic plants, and is fed and drained by restfully-noisy waterfalls and watersinks. Here is natural beauty and sensory charm, because Sepp knows that we need more than food to sustain us, and he shows us how in this video."

Terraces and Raised Beds - This film describes the destructive effects of pine tree monocoltures on the landscape and how Sepp uses terraces and raised vegetable beds to establish a biodiverse habitat and create microclimates.

Permaculture in Practice
"Permaculture (Permanent Agriculture) is the design of an ecologically sound way of living in our households, gardens, communities and businesses in cooperation with Nature.
This video, whose aim is to inspire people to start their own permaculture projects, shows how it is practised in four very different settings: a Hampshire back garden belonging to the editors of Permaculture Magazine, including fruit trees, vegetables, bees, chickens and ducks; a community co op in Devon, which involves a café, allotments and local composting scheme; a City Challenge project in Bradford close to a housing estate with 10,000 residents, tackling the problems of unemployment, environmental awareness and backyard food growing; and a small farm in the Forest of Dean where innovative marketing schemes ensure a close link between producer and consumer including a vegetable box scheme, organic meat, and locally produced charcoal."

"After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues. None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul's gardens and orchards. "Back to Eden" invites you to take a walk with Paul as he teaches you sustainable organic growing methods that are capable of being implemented in diverse climates around the world."

The three films were

about 30 minutes each. They are well worth watching if you can find them. The trailer gives a good introduction though. I love the aerial view of his pond systems.

I watched the four part clip of the talk he gave a while back. It's interesting to see how he developed his version of "permaculture" by observing the patterns in nature and reproducing them in a systematic way on his farm.

You're a blessing, stillwater

I can't say how many times I have to replace those links. I swear they watch my post for videos to pull. Maybe it's because I linked directly to Oko film so they know people are visiting them from this post. Just took out their link. :P

I'll start adding some of these but it may take a little while because I'm a bit worn out.

Over several years, he transformed a rundown house and hillsides of berry brambles into pasture and gardens where he produces and preserves most of his family's food. Visit the Goose Grotto in a constructed pond, a heritage fruit tree orchard, logs producing shiitake mushrooms, and a cheap-and-easy container kitchen garden. Mark gives us a closeup view of the solar dehydrator he constructed from salvaged materials - and his tips on food drying. He has husbanded up to fifty animals at a time, including two Tibetan yaks!”

The global gardener is easier to say than New World Order.

NWO is exact opposite of global garder.
The global garderner mind set is good, and passionately powerful.
So powerful, it will be the tip of the spear in pushing back world domination by totalitarian fatalist sycophants. however, it will take at least a generation). Rise to the challenge! Support small farmers everywhere.
Hillary Clinton is currently convincing African government to allow foreign investment. (this will be mono crop intensive farming). The CIA is curruntly purchasing land all over Africa. (CIA is security guards for big pharmafia). The Fed enables insider sycophants like the Clintons.

Right now, is the most important window in the history of homosaphiens.

Geoff Lawton ...

Geoff Lawton has a new permaculture dvd coming out in September.

Introduction to Permaculture Design DVD Trailer - "Introduction to Permaculture Design with Geoff Lawton. Based on the Bill Mollison Permaculture Manual and the 72 hour Permaculture Design Certificate course, Geoff Lawton explains the theory and takes you through a number of Permaculture designed projects that are patterned on Nature."

Here are some other interesting gardening examples.

Thanks for keeping this

Thanks for keeping this thread alive.

Do you know of any good resources for tropical, or better yet sub-tropic dessert with monsoons, permaculture resources? I'll be moving to India in a few months and am looking to build up my knowledge so I can buy and build up a small farm. This whole thing was just settled a few days ago so I haven't had time to look into it yet.

Here is what ...

Here is what I was able to find.

Planetary Permaculture Directory - Possible groups you may be able to contact regarding permaculture in India. Among them is Dr. Venkat (Permaculture Association of India) who I believe was featured in Bill Mollison's Global Gardener video (Tropical Permaculture Part 3 & 4 in the main post). He worked with the Deccan Development Society to spread permaculture in the arid Andhra Pradesh region of India. The particular site featured in the video is north of Hyderabad. The PRI institute of Australia would probably still be the best place to contact first.

India Climate Zone Map

India: The Talupula Site, Part I - Here is an interesting three part article on a permaculture project in the Andhra Pradesh region.

The Cultivated Plants of the Tropics and Subtropics- by Sigmund Rehm and Espig Gustav

Probably the most important thing would be to talk to people who have actual hands on project experience and see what groups they have worked with in the past as well as the type of preparations that need to be made when planning for your move.

Thank you so much. Did you

Thank you so much.

Did you look at that page where the three part article comes from? Its one of the best permaculture sites I've ever seen.

I will definitely be using this and contacting the people in the region when I get there.
