Sepp Holzer’s Permaculture

sepp_holzer This DVD contains all three films on the Austrian “Agro-Rebel” Sepp Holzer, who simply observes nature and works with it successfully.

Sepp Holzer built one of the biggest functioning permaculture farms in Europe.

This DVD contains 3 films about Permaculture Farming:

    Farming with Nature:
    A beautiful fishpond system with its own water power station, 9000 fruit trees and many other plants support each other in this biotope. 30 different types of potatoes, many different grains, fruits, vegetables, herbs and wildflowers are growing just about everywhere: in the forest, on extremely steep hills, on rocky soil, on pathways, around ponds, as well as raised beds. All of this he grows without the use of any pesticides, herbicides, fertilizer and without depending on subsidies.

    Aquaculture:

    Fishponds on a mountain farm: an unusual sight at these altitudes. On an Austrian mountain, permaculture farmer Sepp Holzer created more than 70 ponds and wetland areas covering about 3 hectares.  Aquaculture is about the sustainable use of water.

    Terraces and Raised Beds:

    Lungau, Austria. Pine forest carpets the alpine foothills. It looks natural, a typical scene from a tourist brochure- but it was not always so. This landscape used to support diverse flora and fauna until the pine trees were planted making the soil acidic…and acidic soil is completely unsuited to agricultural use. Farmer Sepp Holzer has made a name for himself by successfully challenging this damaging practice.
