Most sellable food (documentary)

Hearing those big business people they care about customers and do great products shows how hypocrisy and deceit have become the way to go. Shame on these brands that care about their profits while the whole world grows fat and sick. I would put all of these guys in jail and throw away the key. As far as consumers they should really think twice about the crap arguments written onto packs and go back to cooking genuine meals.

Farmageddon - The truth about the food and dairy industry (documentary)

Americans' right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent ac-tion, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.

Filmmaker Kristin Canty's quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family-operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities. Instead of focusing on the source of food safety problems — most often the industrial food chain — policymakers and regulators implement and enforce solutions that target and often drive out of business small farms that have proven themselves more than capable of producing safe, healthy food, but buckle under the crushing weight of government regulations and excessive enforcement actions.

Farmageddon highlights the urgency of food freedom, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals' rights to access food of their choice and farmers' rights to produce these foods safely and free from unreasona-bly burdensome regulations. The film serves to put policymakers and regulators on notice that there is a growing movement of people aware that their freedom to choose the foods they want is in danger, a movement that is taking action with its dollars and its voting power to protect and preserve the dwindling number of family farms that are struggling to survive.

John D Liu - Green Gold

The video takes you to China, Jordan, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Bolivia, and features the PRI's own Geoff Lawton, who adds impetus and technical know-how to John's impressive toolbox, as well as the 'Permaculture Princess' (Princess Basma bint Ali of Jordan), and others.

It's the story of healing landscapes at scale, and, with it, restoring life, livelihoods, security and a future.
"It's possible to rehabilitate large scale damaged ecosystems. So, if we can
rehabilitate large scale damaged ecosystems... why don't we do that?" — John Liu

Having this video aired at Rio+20 is an immense victory in itself — it feels like no small reward for our dogged efforts to bring permaculture into mainstream media and thus into mainstream consciousness. All of our readers and contributors are part of this effort, as you learn, share and help us inspire a new generation.

This video is not just a tale of hope, it's evidence of hope — it's proof that we do not need to give in to apathy, despair and an 'eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die' mentality. Instead, we see we have the simple solutions right in front of us. The only challenge is the people systems to make it happen — education and fostering collaboration.
