These are just a few “tasty morsels” (clips/webisodes), if there’s a chance to view the entire “meal” (25 minute segment) of BIG IDEAS FOR A SMALL PLANET that would be nice.

Did anyone tape it?

UPDATE: Miss it?  Just heard that the episode will rerun on Sunday

    I watched it and was wonderful! It was nice putting a voice to a face. Our garden didn’t do well this year, so I”m going to do more reading and hopefully next year it’ll be better.
    Happy Harvesting!

  2. Paul Gardener says:

    I just love watching you all in action! Congrats on the next in a long line of accomplishments.
    Keep up the good fight!

    I enjoyed watching the show, although I was going back and forth to the kitchen canning peaches! But I recorded it to rewatch it later. I must say, the backyard looked smaller than in the pictures on the website!

  4. bess says:

    okay so big question! are your gardens on top of cement?
    just wondering. i saw in that image of the backyard, i mean, you didn’t use a jack hammer to remove the concrete? i think that is really interesting because my experience here in shandaken, what the joke is, is that there is one dirt for every 5 rocks. and i should have just put beds on top of the soil rather than trying SO hard to remove the rocks and the soil isn’t so great, very acid and clay. my dream was to have beds in the soil, but the soil is TOUGH. well, i think a lot of folk moving to the country might not need a jack hammer but would really benefit from sustainable concepts that are developed for the city, since many of us really aren’t ready to try to transform the soil. sticking your shovel into soil and hitting rock after rock after rock is daunting and frustrating. but all just thoughts tho.
    great stuff!

    You were great and the subject of the show was so relevant.
    Here the local county government is working with the State Dept of Agriculture to support and develope small farms and local foods. They even have a county run farm that volunteers, the homeless and inmates work at to provide fresh healthy food for the loca food banks and homeless shelters. All organic or nearly so.
    Keep up the great work. You are making people think.

    bess I can tell you they took the cement out after several years of growing in containers on top of it!

    I loved the clips. My parents have nubian goats and I had to pause the second video when Anais walks into the animal closure. The goats are so tiny!!!! 🙂

  7. Janice says:

    These clips are awesome!!! You are all an inspiration. This year my garden is suffering from severe mite infestations. We got maybe 1/3 of the amount of tomatoes as last years crops. Frustrating!

    I watched your episode today on the Sundance Channel. I am amazed and inspired. thank you!
