One Possible Solution

The unsustainability of conventional farming is something that I don't like to think about, because it terrifies me, because it makes me feel like there is nothing I can do. But gardening and permaculture may be the key to maintaining our food supply when we no longer have the option to fertilize and transport our food with the world's dwindling supply of fossel fuels.

This documentary opens with all of that dreadful information that gives me nightmares. But by the third part, it gets into the good stuff: realistic, productive alternatives that are already being put into practice by farmers in the UK.

Thank you for watching. I hope this inspires you to grow more of your own food.
