  • Honolulu, HI (1888PressRelease) October 12, 2009 - Independent filmmakers Al & Jayne Cloutier of World Class Productions LLC have won a prestigious Award of Excellence from the Accolade Competition. This award was given for World Class Production's educational film on sustainable agriculture, "Olomana Gardens: Permaculture and Aquaponics".

    "Olomana Gardens: Permaculture and Aquaponics" with Master Gardener, Glenn Martinez, takes viewers on an in-depth tour of a certified organic demonstration farm. In the 60 minute film we learn about permaculture as practiced at Olomana Gardens in Waimanalo, Hawaii.

    When Glenn Martinez and his wife Liz opened their farm in Waimšnalo over a decade ago, Glenn knew he would farm organically. What he couldn't have fathomed is how his farm would evolve over that decade, seamlessly aligning with the principles of Permaculture. And not by luck, mind you. Glenn is an articulate, mechanically minded, forward-thinking famer and stands by his convictions of education and hard work. It s no accident Olomana Gardens is leading the charge in Hawaii for aquaponics, one of the smartest and most sustainable ways to farm organically.

    Permaculture is basically about reducing waste: using everything and not throwing anything away. The main goal is to create living and sustainable systems. Itís an ecologist's dream of actively conserving world life and resources. The film focuses on the symbiotic relationships between man, animals, and plants. An integral feature of the tour is the aquaponics section.

    Aquaponics comes from aquaculture coupled with hydroponics. This type of growing system combines fish farming with organic vegetable production. It has the potential of supplying vast numbers of people with a sustainable and ecologically healthy supply of protein and vegetables, at minimal investment, with rapid and bountiful harvests. The systems are so efficient and economical; they can be installed on lanais, backyards, and on rooftops.

    The Accolade recognizes film, television, and videography professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change. Entries are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film and television industry.
