Australian Premiere

Screening with short film Simple Living

Inspired by the revolutionary work of David Holmgren, A Living Earth is a beautifully shot documentary about the Belgian Desnié Farm School and the power of Permaculture to build a sustainable world.

What is \”Permaculture\”? Is it an organic vegetable garden? A band of hippies surrounded by sticks of incense? Seed eaters who talk to birds?

During a year in the heights of the Belgium town of Spa, A Living Earth follows experts, trainees and children who open our eyes to the fascinating world of a sustainable ecosystem.

The documentary could have easily been titled: “Permaculture for Dummies”.


\"\"Simple Living explores whether \’less is really best\’? The film follows three Australian families\’ unique journeys to build their small dream homes, from tiny homes to cob cottages, using mostly local, recycled and salvaged materials. Find out how they navigate past land challenges and bank debts to find their ultimate abundance.
