First Friday Filmclub

Gentlepeeps and Naturefolks, gather around... spend the next sixteen minutes of your lives being brought the magic of a single man's effect upon his environment; and then, if you will, spend another sixteen pondering how you might contribute even a fraction to your own.



Was that not worth the investment of your time? Is there a place to plant a tree near you? Since first watching this a couple months back, I bought a dwarf fruit tree for the father's garden. He may not be around to gather the harvest when it eventually comes, but one can only hope that future residents of that little environment will appreciate both the shade and the yield. One tree... imagine the seven billion population of the planet planting just one tree...

A gal can dream.

By the by... the website mentioned at the end of the film is no longer active. Those of you on the 'phizzog' thingo can find it and they do have a kickstarter site still up and running.

    I recently heard the monsoons had started in India. Water is so scary.

      Yes, the monsoon begins in June and runs till end-august/early September... and can be quite overwhelming! Glad you enjoyed the little film. Yxx

  2. I planted a tree last fall. I don't own my home, but I'll leave at least one tree behind.

      Indeed, home ownership is not a prerequisite to the leaving of trees... our Maestro had a natural burial and has a silver birch as her marker... there is a forest growing in the ground where she lies. Yxx

  3. Hello, what a wonderful story and video. I next to a forest, so there is not room to plant another tree. I would if I could. It is great you planted a tree for your father. The earth does need more people who care. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your day and have a happy weekend!
