“Permaculture a quiet revolution” – 2007 – 27min/
“Garten ohne Gärtnern” 2015 – 28min – NDR

This is number seven of the ” One documentary per week series”.
For some time now every Sunday I will suggest one documentary for us to watch sometime during the course of the week. Each of the films I choose, is one that I regard as must see and must know abouts. Where possible they will be in English and German or at least also with German subtitles! This time there are two different documentaries one in German and one in English.
In our daily lives, the concerns of the world can be easily forgotten since they seem so far away. Taking an hour a week to learn something new or to be inspired or to be touched, is a great investment of our precious life time!
Even if sad information can be hard to take, often the solutions are just around the bend and start in our own backyards and with our day to day life choices! “Think global – act local” is more true and important than ever!
All these wonderful documentaries can help us to understand the big picture while showing us what you and I can do about it!
As we are watching these films, we can have discussions about the documentaries that we have watched or share links to interesting projects that deal with those issues and that are part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
I hope you will enjoy this idea and participate, share and embrace it! Enjoy watching!

In May 2007, the 8th International Permaculture Convergence (IPC8) was held in Brazil, bringing together visionary activists from 43 countries in the common goal of preparing for, and mitigating, our looming global crisis. Their strategy: Self-reliance and sustainability through permaculture. This timely documentary offers practical steps on how to “permaculturize’ our lives.

It invites viewers into a permaculture community that spans the globe. Most importantly, it gives the critical inspiration needed to turn our backs on that which is failing us, and to create a sustainable future of our own making.


Garten ohne Gärtnern – 2015 NDR – 28min,sendung70234.html

Der Landschaftsgärtner Volker Kranz hat eine Vision: ein Garten, der kaum Arbeit macht, in dem der Giersch nicht mühevoll beseitigt werden muss, sondern in seinen natürlichen Grenzen bleibt und gedeiht. Als “Permakultur-Designer” bereist Volker Kranz das Oldenburger Land und zeigt den Menschen, wie man Gärten anlegt, die zur essbaren Landschaft werden und die möglichst wenig Arbeit machen.
