Robert and Robyn Guyton’s amazing 23-year-old food forest in New Zealand is beautifully documented in this mini documentary by Happen Films called “An Invitation For Wildness”.

Their two-acre property has been transformed from a neglected piece of land into a thriving ecosystem.

“My philosophy about what to do in the world isn’t ‘go to a pristine area and live there and enjoy your life.’ It’s to find a place that is degraded and fix it up.” – Robert Guyton

What do you think of their permaculture food forest? Would you ever like to live this way?
