Back to Eden

Award win­ner at the 2013 Green Unplugged Film Fes­ti­val, offi­cial selec­tion at the 2011 Aware­ness Film Fes­ti­val

Back to Eden (direct­ed by Dana Richard­son and Sarah Zentz) shares the sto­ry of Paul Gautschi’s life­long jour­ney, learn­ing how to get back to the sim­ple, pro­duc­tive organ­ic gar­den­ing meth­ods of sus­tain­able pro­vi­sion. After years of back­break­ing toil in ground rav­aged by the effects of man-made grow­ing sys­tems, Paul has dis­cov­ered what he believes God intend­ed for mankind in the Gar­den of Eden. None of the vital issues fac­ing agri­cul­ture today — soil prepa­ra­tion, fer­til­iza­tion, irri­ga­tion, weed con­trol, pest con­trol, crop rota­tion and pH issues — exist in the unal­tered state of nature or in Paul’s gar­dens and orchards. Back to Eden invites view­ers to take a walk with Paul as he shares the sus­tain­able organ­ic grow­ing meth­ods, suit­able for use in diverse cli­mates, that have gar­nered the inter­est of vis­i­tors from around the world.
