From the makers of The Man Who Stopped The Desert (PM73) this film is essential viewing for the ‘climate change generation’. It highlights not just the necessity to adapt our landscapes but also how people must come together and physically be involved in that change. It is permaculture on a massive scale. For many of us our image of Ethiopia may... more

Knead To Know could almost have been designed for the permaculture community.

The book is full of information on ingredients, basic recipes... more
