Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

We at Food Forest Farm have been anticipating INHABIT for months (we love Costa's work and in fact have hired him for three of our videos). It's filled with our friends and acquaintances: Eric Toensmeier, Lisa DePiano, Lisa Fernandes, Steve Gabriel, Ben Faulk, Steve Witman, Dave Jacke, Geoff Lawton, Keith Morris, Andrew Faust, and Mark Shepard. Watch the trailer and then pay to watch the movie in the comfort of your own living situation. Or, go watch it with your friends at one of the showings near you. If you get inspired by what you see, and want to learn more about the power of permaculture, register for: "Create your own Paradise Lot: Food Tasting and Workshop", and learn within Food Forest Farms' Paradise Lot garden, showcased in the INHABIT film.
