This first installment in a series of Free - Open Source Permaculture documentary films provides people with inspirational and educational footage of permaculture from across the world. 

Seeds of Permaculture is a full length documentary featuring strategies for tropical permaculture. Filmed in various beautiful locations throughout South East Asia,Seeds of Permaculture packs in tons of interactive information and special features into 90 minutes of beautiful high definition.

Much more than just an educational film, Seeds of Permaculture brings several creative contributions to the field of film making, including: interactive chapters, crowdsourced production, creative commons licensing and completely free distribution.

What this means is that Seeds of Permaculture is free to download, share, modify, re-upload and build upon exponentially. A gift to the world from the generosity of a new economic reality of abundance.

"If it is beautiful, it's better" Christian Shearer, Founder of Terra Genesis and The Panya Project proposes, as he demonstrates permaculture principles and practices in the scenic landscapes of SE Asia.

Filmed mostly in Thailand, beauty is an obvious ingredient in this film. Like the spice of a freshly prepared curry, the beauty is palpable! From lush food forest systems, to artistic natural structures and the delightful hearts of the people who build and inhabit them, this movie is sure to leave you breathless.

Funded through several generous contributors and a successful crowdfunding campaign on the new permaculture crowdfunding platform,, AHOOHA has been able to pay forward the generosity of the permaculture community through the release of this new film and interactive content.

AHOOHA believes permaculture is the way to solve many of the problems the world faces today. By providing an accessible format of inspiration and education to everyone for free, AHOOHA blazes a trail into a promising new future for humanity. With a vision for making permaculture accessible to the world, the filmmakers of AHOOHA are already working on future installments of this documentary series.

Demonstrating design solutions for all the various climates and situations from around the world; "now we've seen permaculture in the tropics, we would love to show you permaculture in practice in an Urban environment." says Rogier van der Voort, AHOOHA's Production Manager.
