    Great video. There is lots of great information. The video production is superb. Although I am just a backyard gardener there is still lots of useful information that I can apply to my garden. It is also very motivational to keep up my work and its great to see new ideas and innovation in farming.

  27. Luke M.

    Fantastic hands on video illustrating workings of a small truck farm. Useable information for organic or conventional, or any scale farm. It was refreshing to me that they weren’t differentiating their organic products by running down conventional agriculture.

  28. Jonas C.

    Really good, this is how media distribution should be done. Pay once, get a download that you can play anywhere

  29. Craig V.

    Great service. Received video in 3 days.

  30. Shaun O.

    I downloaded the ‘Market Gardeners Toolkit’, the video is great and well done, for some reason I couldn’t initially download the video on my phone, I would get an error message saying the page I was looking for does not exist. Other than that there are several videos and films I would like to check out.

  31. CAssie A.

    After paying for my download, it took nearly 2 weeks to be able to actually be and able to download it completely. There were continuously issues with the site, and the download would fail. But in the end I did finally get my video and I have enjoyed it.

  32. Brandon S.

    Went as well as hoped.

  33. Andy S.

    right on!!

  34. Andrea G.

    I am so impressed with the quality of the Possible Media dvds that I have purchased. They are very informative and engaging. I have learned so much that I can apply to my own small farm. The Market Gardener Toolkit is very inspiring and contains a lot of practical how-to information that has helped me re-think how I plan my garden to maximize the yield while simplifying and lessening the workload. The Permaculture Orchard is also a valuable resource that I will watch many times as I learn how to work with nature instead of trying to do my own thing. I look forward to purchasing more dvds and hope that Possible Media will continue to add more titles.

  35. Robert B.

  40. Ralf G.

    This is just a wealth of information, I am most thankful and I hope a lot more will follow. Thank you!

    I ordered the DVD on 8/24 and it arrived 8/28 in perfect condition. I like the division of material into logical categories, which also makes it very accessible for review. Thanks for a job well done.

    Ordering was very simple and we received our order very quickly. No problems. Happy customer

  49. Jessanna L.

    The Market Gardener Toolkit did not disappoint. I had read his book and was happy to get to see a visual for the info. Our DVD skipped and that was disappointing.
