The featured documentary, Back to Eden, reveals a simple organic gardening method that can not only transform your personal garden, but may even be part of the food solution needed on a global scale as well.
Far from being life sustaining, our modern, large-scale, chemical-dependent farming methods strip soil of nutrients, destroy critical soil microbes, contribute to the creation of deserts where nothing will grow, and saturate farmlands with toxic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers that then migrate into ground water, rivers, lakes, and oceans.
This video really inspired me and after watching it I called my local tree cutting service and was able to get two truckloads of wood-chips dropped on my driveway for free and wheel barreled them on my landscape. The great thing about the wood chips is that they are waste and most companies will give you all you want. I plan on adding more three or four times a year.
I am convinced that Paul makes load of sense and that this is a crucial part of the equation for creating healthy soil to produce healthy plants. Wood chips seem to eliminate the need for any fertilizer or mineral supplements, reduce watering and make weeding a snap.
I hope you will overlook the religious overtones of this film if that doesn't appeal to you, because regardless of your religious beliefs (or lack thereof), the information shared still has tremendous value, and is sure to be of interest to anyone concerned with sustainable agriculture.

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!
