3 Boys Farm, owned and operated by
Robert Tornello and located in Ruskin, on the west coast of sunny
Florida, USA, is an amazing farm that combines the best of modern
technology and time-tested methods to grow vegetables locally and
sustainably. Using alternative energy sources such as solar panels and
wind-turbines, and harvesting rainwater, 3 Boys Farm leads the way to a
future of sustainable agriculture. Produced, directed, and narrated by
Perennial vegetables are a joy to grow and require a lot less time
and effort than annuals. In this book Martin Crawford gives
comprehensive advice on all types of perennial vegetable (edible plants
that live longer than three years), from ground-cover plants and
coppiced trees to plants for bog gardens and edible woodland plants.
There are many advantages to growing perennial vegetables, for example:
they need less tillage than conventional vegetables and so help retain carbon in the soil
the soil structure is not disturbed in their cultivation
they extend the harvesting season, especially in early spring
and, of course, they are much less work.
Part One looks at why and how to grow these crops, and how to look after them for maximum health.
Part Two features over 100 perennial edibles in detail, both common
and unusual – from rhubarb to skirret; Jerusalem artichoke to nodding
onions. This book offers inspiration and information for all gardeners,
whether experienced or beginner, and also includes plenty of cooking
tips. It includes beautiful colour photographs and illustrations

As corporate media
fails to provide accurate news of the world's dire environmental
predicament, the Earth sends a clear message in the form of
record-breaking natural disasters, famine and epidemics.
People are mobilizing for what lies ahead.
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.
A documentary, a research project, a
story of stories about the construction of a sustainable, solidary and
decentralized economy. Weaving nets that overcome the individualization
and the hierarchical division of work. Thousands of people every day all
over the world. Here and now.
"Homage to Catalonia II" is a
documentary that is part of an academic research project. We investigate
new economic cultures, new forms of living and of understanding the
economy. For the IN 3, the High School Institute of Research of the
University Open to Catalonia.
We study the social impact of the
economics|economies that do not follow the patterns of the market, where
profits are the priority, and that have the satisfaction of the needs
and the desires for the persons as a goal.

"Homage to Catalonia II" is a tool for
research. Not a finished, conclusive and closed work, but a work in
progress. We want this documentary to be open to everybody, in and out

Anthony Boutard shares the history behind the different
varieties of corn that he grows, and describes their more notable uses.
Anyone who knows Anthony, knows this farmer believes in growing a wide
diversity of crops, including diversity within a species. It just so
happens that corn being one of the oldest grains also has one of the
largest number of varieties of any crop species.
Ecological Sanitation is an important new approach to sanitation, which is truly sustainable. It uses almost no water in its operation, and human waste products are used as fertilizer. So three major objectives are achieved:
-- saving on water, a critically scarce resource
-- non-pollution of the environment by human waste, a major cause of disease and loss of human life
-- 'closing the nutrient cycle' : the nutrients (primarily Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, and carbon matter) in our excreta goes back into the soil for re-use by plants. Instead of a one-way process where chemicals are mined and used for each crop produced, the same chemicals are returned to the soil for reuse.
Film of the resilient farms talk at the off grid conference.
Second annual Farming Conference held at Fernhill Farm in the Mendip Hills. This years focus will be on building resilience in UK farming and exploring the true resource potentials of the sector. The conference will examine the potentials of ecological diversification of farms and estates, building local economic networks and brands, low carbon food production and the wider benefits of sustainable land management.
Featuring a host of presenters from across the farming world, as well as from renewable energy, waste management and environmental technology groups, the Conference will look at ways in which farmers and estate managers can diversify activity on their land to bring wider economic, social and environmental benefits, as well as building a farming sector in Somerset and the surrounds that reflects the need for greater resilience.
Sessions throughout the day will look at energy generation from sources as diverse as solar, wind and anaerobic digestion; waste processing; education programmes; tourism activities; network-building and local food production. Presentations will be short and lively with a focus on Q&As and discussion topics. Representatives from across the farming and rural sector will be taking part with the conference being introduced and opened by Michael Eavis of Worthy Farm and Glastonbury Festival fame. He will also be holding a Q&A session at the event.
premier épisode : Menaces sur le jardin (avril-août)
Le petit potager familial du Moulin Neuf, situé au cœur du bocage breton, tout près de la petite ville côtière de Douarnenez, n’est pas un jardin comme les autres : pour ne pas polluer le sol, pour manger des légumes sains, et pour ne pas transformer le potager en désert aseptisé, les jardiniers n’utilisent pas le moindre produit chimique, et cela depuis près de 20 ans. Ce potager naturel est filmé comme une jungle miniature peuplée de milliers d’animaux… et de quelques géants, les jardiniers.
Josep Pàmies es un agricultor conocido por su apoyo a la iniciativa legislativa popular contra los transgénicos en Catalunya, y por ser miembro de la asociación “La dulce revolución”, desde donde promueve el conocimiento y uso de las plantas medicinales.
Hoy conoceremos algo más sobre estas plantas que curan y sobre la particular cruzada de Josep contra ciertos intereses que, al parecer, pretenden controlarlas.

Charlie Price from the social enterprise
Aquaponics UK, explores the role aquaponics can play in the future of
our collective food supply. He provides an insight into both the
applications for aquaponics but more specifically a new approach to
urban agriculture, turning wastes into resources and transforming
disused urban spaces to provide not only food, but resilient

retour en images et en vidéos sur un séjour aux Amanins ((Drôme) en août 2011
en 2003 de la rencontre de Pierre Rabhi et de Michel Valentin, Les
Amanins a pour vocation, sur 55 hectares, d'être un lieu favorisant la
transmission des savoirs écologiques et agroécologiques. Pour se faire,
il abrite une ferme, une école, des hébergements, des salles de réunion,
des prés, des champs cultivés et des bois.
When Myrna and Earl Fincher married 53
years ago they started farming their yard "out of necessity". Today, the
Finchers make a living selling their organic produce to restaurants and
at the local farmers' market twice a week for much of the year. They
had no experience as farmers, but learned by trial and error.
may be the most talked about permaculture plant. It is commonly
planted under fruit trees because it does not compete with tree roots,
but it does compete with plants that do compete with tree roots.
El documental El sueño del mirlo cuenta
la historia de dos huertos urbanos de la ciudad de Barcelona. El Huerto
del Forat y el Huerto del Xino son dos espacios que han sido
transformados de una manera auto-gestionada y comunitaria, pasando de
zonas mal aprovechadas a centros de aprendizaje ambiental. Los
personajes nos describen la historia de estos lugares y su forma de
implicarse en los diferentes proyectos y actividades. Mientras conocemos
los huertos, un mirlo, junto con sus amigos del teatrillo de la
zanahoria, realiza un viaje en búsqueda de un lugar donde quede algo del
espíritu de la naturaleza en nuestra ciudad.
