    Are there any documentaries that explains how we could apply permaculture nationally and in extend even globaly? From smallest communities to a global network of sustainable communities? Would be very interesting to learn more about the political and economic aspect of permaculture.

    Design for Life- The Food Forest Story might be of some use. It certainly is an economic model that could be replicated around the world. As is the Polyface Inc model.

    The Garbage Warrior goes into a bit of the political side of things, as they needed to change planning laws to legalise their houses.

    G'day call-u-one

    In terms of a political model, libertarian municipalism works well within the permaculture framework:

    Thank you all. Did check the garbage warrior and the space video was truly beutiful. Markos, ok interesting! Will check that video and listen to the man.

    I know that Bill Mollison did study tribal life alot. Did he give any examples on how any of the native societies were constructed?

    Can't help you with Mollison's 'study of tribal life'. However, Bookchin goes into some detail on the subject in The Ecology of Freedom (1982), among other works.

    Others who have studied 'tribal life' in this context include (for example): Taylor (1949) Urban Geography, and Mumford (1956) The Transformations of Man

    Books as opposed to 'documentaries', but really worth reading if you can find them in your local (perhaps university) library.

    Cheerio, Markos
