Sister Plants

About Film

A group of friends from Ankara set up a group called ‘Sister Plants’. They have bought land and they are doing permaculture there. They are doing farming trials with the sister plants technique.

Sister Plant Technique: It is based on a principle that the plants that are beneficial to each other (in shading feeding the soil, driving the hazardous insects away, attracting helpful insects, etc.) are planted next to one another and disagreeable ones are planted far away. It is one of the best effective methods for ecological agriculture.

This group is collecting their crops and distributing them to their members. By distributing food and information, they are working like a cooperative. With the sister plants group, we witness a life one part in the city and the other part in the village. We track down the clues on how to live in our urban lives without breaking the bonds with the nature.
