It is a new year and a new chapter for the film as we step into a new decade. Last year was very productive with 1/3rd of the film shot with David Holmgren and raising just enough money to head to Tasmania to shoot where it all started. This means we can complete Permaculture's origin story, which is super exciting.
Over the last 6 months I have been busily transcribing, with the help from Production Assistant Regina, the 8 hours of interviews with David to build the story as well as exploring my own permie-journey; growing an edible garden. Although I have been learning so much as I make this film, I was feeling guilty, because I wasn't practising this knowledge myself. So, my partner and I decided to try grow our own veggies in an old neglected garden bed and find out how much work it would be, for someone starting from scratch.
In this video update, Craig the Director of the film, shares his own journey as he challenges himself to grow his own veggies at home and also what's in store for the film early 2020.
