I had the privilege of making a documentary about this remarkable project rooted in food security and sustainability, and it was an eye-opening experience. From the very beginning, the passion and dedication of the team were evident as they consulted and designed edible landscapes while imparting permaculture knowledge to the community. The documentary captured the essence of the project's mission, revealing the challenges faced by many in reconnecting with the land and improving the quality of their food. They made it their mission to simplify gardening for everyone, ensuring that people could easily access plants and supplies or design their own urban gardens. The inclusivity and support they offered were genuinely heartwarming.
