“Life in Syntropy” is a beautiful and powerful film (15:29) and very much worth watching.
Ernst is a farmer and researcher who has devoted his life to creating a form of food production he calls ‘Successional Agro-Forestry.’ He began this pioneering work in his native Switzerland, then Costa Rica, and now for the last three decades in the southern Bahia region of Brazil. Ernst incorporates forest dynamics into a unique form of regenerative agriculture. The resilience and health of his soil – not to mention the bountious crops of food – under this system is truly remarkable. Jim
