Edgars protest is probably the most pacific protest in the world. As long as you see sustainable living in an ecovillage as a revolt. The former permaculture teacher from Peru has been living in nature for over 20 years and now he has it all; a warm shower, a washing machine and even a terrace heater. Because living in nature is not about suffering. It's about living in luxury and having a choice. Edgar has chosen the easy life with fresh air, clean water and food from the garden. Where everyday is like sunday except thursday.. that's market day.
These are the stories of 10 graduates from Verge's Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course, documenting what they've done with the knowledge, skills and inspiration they acquired from the course. Two film makers set out to find these graduates and catch them in action, capturing their successes, struggles, and transformations as they embark on new endeavours - starting gardens, homesteads, community projects, businesses, building sustainable homes and structures, hosting conferences and much more.
At this turning point in human history, where people from all walks of life have begun searching for a more fulfilling and sustainable way of living, these PDC graduates show what is possible, and in doing so demonstrate the essence of the permaculture movement that is sweeping Calgary and the world. We hope that watching these videos inspires you as much as we were inspired by creating them; so kick back, press play, and enjoy watching positive, practical change in action!
