Recently I came across two great documentaries and an episode from one of my favorite podcasts which revolve around plants. I find myself thinking back to these stories regularly, the ideas are like seeds that need to spread, so I thought I’d share some links.
The Salt of the Earth – about the life of incredible photographer Sebastiao Salgado, and the foundation he and his wife set up to combat deforestation and erosion in Brazil by planting native trees and creating an education center (read more about Instituto Terra)
Seeds of permaculture – beautiful and inspiring documentary about permaculture, and what impact a holistic approach to growing our own food can have.
The surprising story about a writer who gets the dream job of taking care of a wonderful garden. (Strangers is a podcast about true (and often incredibly moving) stories that link total strangers. It makes for amazing listening!)
Any suggestions of other similar films or podcasts?
