        I am currently a second year junior at The Hotchkiss School and for my final project in AP Environmental Science, I decided to make a short documentary film. Fairfield Farm is located on my school's campus and, although I had visited before I never really knew very much about it. The Fairfield Farm Ecosystems and Adventure Team (FFEAT) is a co-curricular option Hotchkiss students can choose as their after-school activity. This program gives students the opportunity to go to the farm after school and work in a varying number of ways with farm staff and ultimately help contribute to our environment and community. What I was most interested about F.F.E.A.T, was what people thought they gained from working on the farm and I ended up interviewing two faculty that are directly involved with the program.

            Though many people are familiar with wood for thermal energy, agricultural residues and energy crops present another feedstock source for continued growth of the biomass thermal market. This webinar will examine the similarities and differences between woody and non-woody biomass with regards to supply, feedstock processing, and combustion. Additionally, the webinar will identify opportunities and challenges for expanding agricultural biomass to new markets and end users. Hear from three speakers as they share research and first-hand experience highlighting the similarities and differences of between woody and agricultural biomass for thermal applications. This is the ninth webinar in a 14-part series hosted by the Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC), and funded in part by the Forest Service's Wood Education and Resource Center (WERC).

                from Michael Brown / Added

                A haphazard audio recording of an equally haphazard conversation leads to an unexpected encounter between two generations and – through bakery and farming tradition via kidney stones to mating issues – an unusual summary of the times we live in. This is a faithful adaptation of a conversation that actually took place and was visually re-enacted in it's original German language version "Deutsche Bank".

                      This is one of Greenwood Management's forestry projects situated in the state of Bahia, Brazil. This aerial footage shows both the front and rear parts of the property, with the majority of the property established with eucalyptus and acacia forestry crops. Fazenda Santa Maria, among other forestry project sites, is owned and operated by Greenwood Management and are currently undergoing independent valuation of each property. With roughly 5,000 hectares of forestry plantation under management, Greenwood Management has established itself as one of the largest forest operators in the region. The company is in the process of further expanding the company's forestry investment projects by acquiring a further 3,000 hectares of barren land for the establishment of farm forestry crops. Currently Greenwood Management have some of the best forest plantations established in the region due to continued research and development with the help of strategic partnerships with European and Brazilian Universities and specialist plantation forestry companies. The company's first commercial thinning is this year (2014) and it is expected that Greenwood will continue to develop its activities further as the forestry projects progress. Greenwood Management also operate sizable plantation forestry projects in Canada. These sites in Canada focus on the production and sale of Christmas trees in the region. According to independent reports Greenwood Management will account for approximately 10% of the New Brunswick Canadian Christmas tree production, and by the year 2018 Greenwood Management should be responsible for around 6% of the region's Christmas tree sales.
