Groundbreaking Permaculture Film Offers Bold New Solution in Regenerative Agriculture
Everywhere you hear that we need to minimize our footprint and reduce our impact. But what if we turned that kind of thinking on its head? What if, as Bill McDonough says, instead of trying to be "less bad," we try to be "more good." What if our footprints became beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise of a new movie Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective, which will have its worldwide digital premiere on Earth Day, April 22.
Inhabit investigates today's pressing environmental problems and offers solutions through a permaculture lens. For those who aren't familiar, permaculture is defined many different ways, but it is generally defined as a method of ecological design that develops regenerative agricultural systems by mimicking natural ecosystems. "Permaculture is a design process that's applicable in any landscape for any set of objectives," said the film.
The film offers an in-depth look at permaculture in rural, suburban and urban landscapes and ultimately offers a bold new solution. The film will be distributed by the start-up Yekra, which is making waves in the online movie market for its innovative decentralized platform of movie-viewing, which they tout as direct-to-fan.

We despise single-use plastics. We want to keep our oceans and our beaches clean. Early last year I (Claire) lived in India for several months and became curious about plastic waste, as it was much more visible in India than back home in the U.S. Seeing all the plastic waste while I was visiting helped me to understand that much of the trash produced by the U.S. actually ends up in developing countries, like India, which does not have a proper waste management system like we do at home, which causes a ton of trash to end up in waterways and the ocean.
In a case watched closely both by polluting industries and clean water advocates across the nation, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up an appeal of a Clean Water Act case out of Hawaii concerning treated sewage flowing into the Pacific Ocean from injection wells.
