Life in Syntropy - With Agenda Gotch

11:25 AM - 1 January 2016 ( 0 Votes ) 

Our First Video for 2016- great short film on Ernst Götsch work in Brazil. Great model for so many land use projects. This guys is creating one amazing Food Forest. In 1985, Ernst Götsch started a cacao plantation in the south of Bahia, Northeast Brazil. The land was in very poor condition. After 40 years of slash and burn agriculture the soil was depleted and the wells had run dry. Five years later the land was covered by a young but productive agroforest and water was flowing again. This was the result of the system of ‘regenerative analog agroforestry’ developed by Götsch and known in Brazil as SAFRA.
