Permaculture Potluck & Movie Night: "The Permaculture Orchard"

All Hail the return of our winter Permaculture Movie Nights!  For the price of $1 in the fishbowl, some potluck food and cheer and your good company, you can see some great films oriented to our permaculture group's interest.

We will be doing movie night every first Thursday October through April!  We're just starting to get them scheduled and have a couple of titles in mind.  Feel free to email the meetup organizer with other cool recent movies that you think we should add to our schedule.

October:  Our kick-off film of the season is the brand-new The Permaculture Orchard. 

The Permaculture Orchard : Beyond Organic is a feature-length educational film that will teach you how to set up your own permaculture orchard at any scale. We recognize the limitations of the organic model as a substitute to conventional fruit growing, and want to propose a more holistic, regenerative approach based on permaculture principles. Based on 20 years of applied theory and trial and error, biologist and educator Stefan Sobkowiak shares his experience transforming a conventional apple orchard into an abundance of biodiversity that virtually takes care of itself. The concepts, techniques and tips presented in this film will help you with your own project, whether it is just a few fruit trees in your urban backyard, or a full-scale multi-acre commercial orchard.

    Lisa, do you think the film will be available to rent on netflix in the future? I really would like to see the last part I missed; besides that, it's a good reference film. I'm grateful though for the tip I got from you and Aaron about giving my neighbor some "suckers" from my plum trees. Again, it was very good for me to benefit from your good company.

      Yum, I would love a plum tree! (I've been thinking about it lately!)

    Thanks everyone for the great potluck food and conversation about the film. A must-see for anyone who wants to do orcharding in holistic way. Sorry that some of you were not able to make it.

    I'm so happy about the prospect of seeing some of you dear friends after such a long time I've been necessarily absent, because of writing. My third book in process is THIS NEW LIFE A Widow's Journal. But this topic fits perfectly (Had peaches and plums this year, not to mention the usual wonderful blueberries, grapes and edible cornus mas berries! The birds ate the cherries.) Elaine
