A Story of Chickens and Food Stamps

In 2014, Justin Rhodes flew across the world to attend one of our Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) courses at Zaytuna Farm, home of The Permaculture Research Institute. Two years later, Justin and his wife Rebekah are inspiring others and fueling the Permaculture fire with their film Permaculture Chickens and a Youtube Vlog, 100 Days of Growing Food.

In the video below, their story from illness and financial lows to abundant homesteading has been captured in this micro-documentary by Videofruit.

A fascinating and uplifting journey of self-reliance.

Story of chickens and foodstamps

About a month ago I got an email from a guy telling me about how he and his wife had created a documentary about chicken farming. It was so random and 'off the wall' that I kind of dismissed it at first.

But somehow he popped back up on my radar and I dug in more. The more I learned about his story the more awestruck I was. So much so that 3 weeks ago I hired a film crew and we drove out to his farm in Asheville, NC to capture his story.

It really is one the most remarkable stories I've ever heard. Enjoy!

Sidenote: We don't need to "make america great again" by building giant walls between us and our neighbors. What we need is more Justin's and Rebekah's! These are the types of people that make a difference, cure diseases and change the world. Be like them.
