We make films about permaculture, tiny homes, simple living and becoming more resilient in a changing world.
Today we released the first of many videos in our brand new series called Hands On! In this video, the lovely Kirsten from @milkwood_permaculture
shows us how to forage seaweed and make a delicious gomasio seasoning. Link to watch in our bio :)
Let us know what you think of the new series and what you’d like to see us cover in future videos!

Happen Films is 4 years old today! 🎂 To celebrate we’ve released a new short film! Link in our bio to watch it on YouTube.
The Plummery is a suburban home where a backyard permaculture garden measuring only 100sq/m (1076 sq feet) produces over 400kg/900 pounds of food year-round.
describes her approach to gardening, including vertical and biointensive growing, and how important it is – and possible! – for city dwellers to be food resilient in the face of natural, financial and social crises. We were very inspired by how little day-to-day effort goes into creating such an abundance of food!

We’ve just had an awesome weekend filming with the Carter family in Hobart Tasmania, waste-free livers of the mega-inspiring kind! So cool spending time with Lauren and Oberon of @spiralgarden
and their three amazing kids – wow, home-schooling success story here as well – and learning great tips and tricks about how to improve our own attempt at a waste-free life. The best thing about making our films is how much we learn in the process! Watch this space for another film to inspire coming soon :) #wastefree #zerowaste #permaculture #tasmania #filmmaking #sustainability #sustainableliving #documentary
Stoked that Living the Change has been accepted into The Earth Day Film Festival!
