Back to Eden Documentary: Free Online Streaming
by Organic Gardens Network
Since the online premier of Back to Eden in 2011, the film has garnered the interest of over 2 million viewers in 210 countries! When filming Paul Gautschi at his garden on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, we never imagined such a global response! To us, this is proof that people are hungry for sustainable organic gardening methods that are capable of being implemented in diverse climates around the world.
According to the book, "Garden to Table: A 5-Year Look at Food Gardening in America," in the past five years there's been a 17 percent increase in food gardening. Our belief is that Back to Eden has played a significant role in the increase of food gardening!
Streaming online for free 24/7, the film is a gardening resource that teaches how to eliminate all of the work associated with growing food!
Following in the footsteps of Ruth Stout (No Work Garden Book) and Masanobu Fukuoka (One Straw Revolution), Paul Gautschi is leading a new revolutionary movement in the organic gardening community.
Endorsed by the National Gardening Association, Organic Consumers Association and featured in magazines such as Mother Earth News and Organic Gardening NZ, the film is continuing to impact the way food is grown around the world.
Our hope is that people are being connected with what Paul calls "live food." Simply put, fruits and vegetables that are full of nutrients because they are growing in the richest compost with a protective covering.
The health benefits and disease prevention from eating live food is undeniable. So please, watch the film, implement a Back to Eden garden, and get connected to nature and optimal health!
