Sepp Holzer: Farming with Nature

If it can can be done in the most remote regions of the alps in Austria, it can be done anywhere! Plant seeds, everywhere! Amazing! These are clips from fuller videos.

Sepp has 70 ponds on a complex food forested (30,000 fruit trees)100A landscape at 4000ft in the Alps of Austria with a 1000 ft elevation change from top to bottom of his site. He manages it mostly with pigs and a few highland cattle.

You can read Sepp's story from his book Rebel Farmer.

Hiya,

Yes, great films and made by my friends Malcolm and Heidi who are great people...

(...and who deserve to be paid for their work and not repeatedly ripped off :o( )

They live in an ecovillage, and invested a lot of time and effort in making the trilogy film about Holzer. You're able to buy the film direct at www.ecofilm.de: Here's the current offer:

...Now, paying (or bartering) for green goods, that's permaculture in practice!

Cheers,
Max

Thank you for posting the link for purchase, I will update the blog post! I bought a VHS of 'farming with nature' and could only find aquaculture as a free download (sorry). Haven't seen terraces and raised beds yet. I did buy Sepp Holzer's rebel farmer book, inspiring read. Thanks again for the information.
