Back to Eden

December 13th, 2012 No comments


This docmentary is well done, inspirational and very educational (i.e. empowering)  making it one of the best documentaries I’ve watched.

Watch it to learn about the “one” simple trick (well, it’s not a trick, it is what Nature does every day) that can transform gardening and farming from a challenging task to total bliss and lots of bounty.

Produced & Directed by: Dana Richardson & Sarah Zentz

Executive Producer: Michael Barrett

After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of
man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what
God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues
facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization,
irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues.
None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul’s
gardens and orchards.

“Back to Eden” invites you to take a walk with Paul as he teaches you
sustainable organic growing methods that are capable of being
implemented in diverse climates around the world.
