"Back To Eden" Gardening God's Way!

    This is the whole reason I garden! I challenge you to take the time to watch this video. I guarantee you will learn A LOT about gardening for the Master! "Back to Eden" is a very eye opening video in many areas. I could sit here and try to tell you everything that you can learn but I would not do Paul justice! I had a fellow blogger send me this link and inform to me of this video ( Online Video to Back to Eden.)
  If you are trying to be a sustainable person and trying to get away from all the craziness of life, watch and learn. I had to watch it twice already! You will learn so much! You can even use it in raised beds. I just need to stop and you need to watch, don't I? Wait until you have a little over a hour and a half, make a cup of coffee and learn! Please let me know your thoughts when you finish watching the video.

After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues. None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul’s gardens and orchards.
“Back to Eden” invites you to take a walk with Paul as he teaches you sustainable organic growing methods that are capable of being implemented in diverse climates around the world.
  BACK TO EDEN shares the story of one man’s lifelong journey, walking with God and learning how to get back to the simple, productive methods of sustainable provision that were given to man in the garden of Eden. The organic growing system that has resulted from Paul Gautschi’s incredible experiences has garnered the interest of visitors from around the world. However, never until now have Paul’s methods been documented and shared like this!
As a part of our mission to freely give and freely receive, the makers of BACK TO EDEN have agreed to stream the full feature film online for free. For viewers who support this film and who want to help other people see it, please share www.backtoedenfilm.com, buy copies of the full feature film to give to others or host a screening in your community.

  2. I have hear so much about this video that I really need to take the time and watch it myself. Thanks for taking the time to post the link.

    Thank you also for the kind comments on my blog. Most people think we are *odd* for doing such things when it is too easy to go to a store and buy it.

    It may be easier but it's definately not better ;- )

    Have a wonderful weekend in THE LORD!

  4. Will you be using this method on your garden or have you already tried it? I'm very curious to hear how it works for others and any challenges they have implementing it. I'm amazed at how difficult it is for me to find wood chips in my area although I'm using my own chipper and trying to make some of my own. I just need lots more.

    1. I am going to try it Amy, My raised beds are next to the railroad track and it is really rocky. I think I will take part of the area and start using this method. There is a place down the road I can get all the free chips I want. As fare as for you finding wood, he gives you lots of tips on were to find the wood, so watch and the video helps a lot.

    3. Thank you so much Deborah. While it seems like the more I learn about both subjects I try to touch on here, the more I don't really know about them. lol! I just try to share the little bit I do know and hope it can be a help. Thank you so much, I am honored to have you mention my blog. And can't wait.
      Off the subject, I figured up yesterday how much cost I have in one 4'x8'x18" bed, one 4'x4'x18" bed and two 30"x6'x18" Beds, counting the screws and Lumber. I only have $40.00 in them all. My wife and I looked online an saw a kit that was a 4'x8'x17" kit bed for $378.00. My point is be frugal!

  11. We live in the same community as Paul and his method has intrigued us. This past year we were happy to use some wood chips that a landscaper gathered from pruning jobs. We created a new space in our yard separate from the veggie garden to be our squash patch. We put down several layers of newspaper and 3-4 inches of wood chips and then planted our squash. The few weeds that came through the chips pulled easily and the squash did fabulous. Watering was minimal and the harvest was plentiful. I would recommend giving it a try--just don't till the wood chips into the soil.

  12. I just watched this with my sister tonight and we were both super impressed. As I think you know, I'm hoping to start a community garden and at our first committee meeting next week I plan on strongly suggesting we develop our garden in this fashion. I am so excited to get out there and try it!

  13. This was such a good documentary, I bought it and have seen it about 3 times. Love the focus on scripture and how it ties our gardening experience to the nature of God. Another good one is "Fresh".......altho not a christian focus (altho the primary farmer IS christian) it is a great learning experience about proper ecology and how to raise animals the way God intended.

  14. Clint,
    This video was a real eye opener for me. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I loved how everything he did with scripture in mind. I just haven't found a good source of wood chips and in the Northwest we have such a slug problem, I'm not sure if the wood chips would be beneficial or detrimental because the slugs love to hide in them. Blessings,
    Michelle

    Nice to 'meet' you during the UBP12. I hope you have a great weekend!

  17. I had no idea how popular this movie is! It is my midwife and her husband's garden :) Paul is a great guy (and of course his wife, my midwife is THE BEST!), and I have fun memories of him showing me how to make kombucha :)
