Permanent Culture from Actuality Media on Vimeo.

Permanent Culture documents the journey of Joseph, a man who once worked in exploitative sugarcane fields but then found work at Palos Farm. At this permaculture farm, Joseph has not only found more fulfilling work, but also acquired leadership and ecological knowledge that allows him to now be a pillar of support for his family and community. Through his journey, the film explores the benefits of sustainable farming for both the environment and workers.

Based in the monopolized sugarcane region of Kisumu, Kenya, Palos Farm is setting an example to neighboring farms that permaculture is the way forward.
