Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

From the filmmakers:

The World Premiere of INHABIT had an amazing turnout at Permaculture Voices in California, and got lots of cheers and whoops as each new scene began. We’re estimating a crowd of 500. The following day at our booth we spoke with many people eager to setup their own screenings and many wanted to “finally show a film to their families that explains what this is all about!” We are very excited to see how this film can act as an on-ramp for people new to these ideas and allow the permaculture community to setup screenings as a way to begin the conversation.

Designing an Ecological Energy Descent Culture

As we acknowledge the convergent crises of the 21st century, we can be overwhelmed with visions of apocalypse- or embrace some of the greatest opportunities to restructure society with ecological and ethical sanity, localized resilience, and abundance.  We explore the relationships between the built environment, food security, energy, water, and natural communities, in order to retrofit this infrastructure to better adapt to a changing and potentially challenging future.  By examining today’s multifaceted problems from a systems perspective, we focus on the intersection of social and ecological health, and find the best opportunities for leverage to affect change in our personal lives and communities.

Professor Keith Morris is the founder of Willow Crossing Farm, and has worked creating healthy ecologically regerative food systems in Europe, Africa, South America, the South Pacific, and throughout North America.
