*A documentary about the full project life-cycle of a permaculture aid
project in Aceh*

This documentary film shows the development of Permaculture projects in
Aceh, starting from the emergency response activities conducted by *IDEP
Foundation <http://www.idepfoundation.org/>* to help survivors of the Asian
Tsunami <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Indian_Ocean_earthquake> of
December 2004. IDEP Foundation works with the local organization
*Green Camp<http://www.idepfoundation.org/GFS.html>
* to create a long-term Permaculture project.

  This initiative was undertaken to support sustainable recovery of all the
environment and lives that had been impacted. During the 3 years the program
ran, many activities were conducted in many areas by GFS staff and
volunteers. At the conclusion of this program, the Acehnese staff of GFS
decided to continue their work in Aceh as The Aceh Permaculture Foundation

*The Green Hand Field School*

The devastating earthquake and tsunami of December 26, 2004 literally wiped
much of Aceh’s west coast off the map. Half a million survivors are still
living in crowded barracks and moldy tents, having lost their homes,
families, possessions and livelihoods. Roads and bridges were washed away,
leaving many communities isolated.

For Aceh’s Internally Displaced People
food security remains a priority issue. The home gardens, rice fields and
fruit trees that once fed Aceh’s coastal villagers have been destroyed and
many people are left without the means to earn money for food. FAO estimates
that 70% of the farmland on the west coast has been affected by the tsunami
with up to 20% of this permanently damaged or under water.

Affected communities are beginning to strategize how to regain their
self-sufficiency. Many need to learn new skills to produce food in the new
landscape, restore damaged soils, replant their home gardens and
re-establish agricultural systems.

The GHFS Village
helps coastal villages achieve food security and rebuild their
livelihoods while protecting the environment. We believe that if
reconstruction is implemented using sustainable principles, communities will
recover quickly, creating permanent prosperity for the survivors and future
generations. The aim of this sustainable development program is to assist
IDPs in achieving permanent positive change to increase their capacity to
help themselves, becoming self-reliant so that these changes flow on to
future generation
