Establishing a Food Forest

Runtime: 82m 27s | Release date: 2008

This film features: Geoff Lawton.

Join Geoff Lawton on a permaculture adventure as he demonstrates how to grow a food forest from start to finish. Over 90 minutes of quality information to get you on the right track in creating your own garden of Eden.

We start with a 20-minute permaculture classroom as Geoff explains the patterns of a Food Forest and the essential principles of “time stacking” your garden with the right mix of support species that feed and protect your fledgling fruit trees into maturity. We then join Geoff in the field as he puts the theory into action, planting the seeds and watching the system grow.

We end up at Tagari Farm - established by permaculture founding father, Bill Mollision - which was abandoned years ago, but planted according to permaculture design principles. Would this Food Forest survive on its own? You’ll be surprised.

Featuring:
Geoff Lawton

Awesome film, I'm so inspired to create my own food forest, Geoff's enthusiasm makes me believe that this is possible, even for someone with very little experience! Nature is incredible!

I noticed the copy right date is 2008. Wow that little Swale/mount of organic matter would be a fully established towering food forest by now. Just amazing!

Hi Jade! The Tagari Garden Farm is integral to Permaculture and if you wish to check how the Tagari Farm has been doing after Geoff Lawton further developed the site, you can visit their page here: http://www.tagari.com/home/ ~ Jasmin ❤

Inspiring film. I've been a long time fan of Geoff Lawton and permaculture. Hoping to move to a cottage with some garden space to set up a food forest when I retire. The low maintenance production of food in one's garden will be very welcome for seniors.

This is only the 3rd time I've watched Geoff weave his way through showing how to heal the ground to get the most out of it, and I'm so looking forward to taking my bare farm ground to a productive life giving food source.

What a delightful teacher Geoff is who not only found his passion, but teaches it so beautifully. I 100% agree with Rod's comment that his enthusiasm IS contagious. The way in which Geoff explains the segments of a food forest simply, then to witness the results, is not intimidating to think we can do the same. I will do this within the next 2 years with the berms to direct water too! Where ever possible, this should be seen & done in the schools! Bravo.
