Groundbreaking Permaculture Film Offers Bold New Solution in Regenerative Agriculture

Food

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.
