The Market Gardener's Toolkit

An educational film about tools and techniques for a profitable, human-scale agriculture

  • New film, new crowdfunding campaign!

    Hi,

    It's been almost a year since we released The Market Gardener's Toolkit, and we've been very busy! A few days ago we launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to help finance our next film "Gracie's Backyard"

    Filmed over a period of 2 weeks in July 2016, Gracie's backyard is a feature-length documentary that offers a candid look into the daily life of the world's northernmost commercial permaculture farm through the eyes of the people who live and work there.

     Three years after acquiring what was an abandoned farm, Richard Perkins and his partner Yohanna Amselem have managed to create a profitable and diversified business that produces healthy food for their community. Broiler chickens, pastured eggs and organic vegetables from no-dig market gardens are sold locally within a 50-km radius. All that laid out over a silvo-pasture system with an impressive array of berry shrubs, fruit and nut trees which will start yielding tons more of marketable produce within a few years.

     The crowdfunding campaign is already off to a good start, and we've raised about a third of our objective, but there's still a long way to go! Thanks for helping out by pre-ordering a copy of the film or by sharing through your networks.

    Visit the Kickstarter page to learn more and contribute to the financing of the film by pre-ordering your copy!

    Thank you!
