  1. ‘Natural World: A Farm for the Future’ is a documentary which describes a low energy based agricultural system which focuses on woodlands, beneficial insects and wildlife in a healthy ecosystem. I consider it a ‘must see’ for anyone concerned with:
    beneficial insects, biodiversity, climate change, conservation, ecosystems, energy, environment, farming, food, forests, fossil fuels, gardening, green living, livestock, nature, organics, permaculture, soil, sustainability and wildlife.

    It is available online at Top Documentary Films:
