1. God's Grace Garden - an organic farm in Beijing


    from Shirley Han Ying / Added

    Gods Grace Garden, or GGG, is one of the first totally organic farms in China. Established in 2001 by Terese Zhang, GGG covers 150mu (about 25 acres or 10 hectares) and not an inch is wasted! And not an ounce of artificial fertilizer or pesticide intrudes through the walled farm that is home to a dozen cows, numerous dogs, and countless geese, chickens and ducks. Produced by Chris Gelken & Shirley Han Ying.

                Chief conservation officer for Bush Heritage Australia, Dr Nicola Markus, talks about her new book 'On Our Watch' at Embiggen Books. 'On Our Watch' provides, for the very first time, a comprehensive and at times shocking overview of Australia’s current environmental situation. The talk took place to a full house during The Reality Bites Festival in 2009. Reality Bites is a yearly nonfiction literary event in the Noosaville region. Nicola Markus was gracious enough to have lunch with 30 of the attendees where they continued the conversation for another 2 hours after the talk. The feedback from the audience was extremely positive. Nicola is one of that rare breed of scientist who can make the complex understandable and communicates with a real passion about her subject. 'On Our Watch' describes the loss of habitat, introduction of foreign plants and animals to Australia, urbanisation and the impact of environmental legislation. Dr Markus advises how we, as individuals, can make a difference to our country’s future simply by making smart choices and being more pro-active. There is a valuable 10-step guide on how the public can reduce its own global footprint, with suggestions including: contacting local councillors and Members of Parliament; buying local seasonal produce and reducing consumption of red meat and dairy products; supporting a non-government organisation and researching the environmental practices of companies your superannuation shares are invested in. Both practical and inspirational, 'On Our Watch' is a very relevant and much-needed account of our times. We’ll hopefully see her at Embiggen Books again, but until then watch the video of her talk.

                  The warnings from scientists are unequivocal: we cannot sustain our current levels of consumption and growth. We are depleting the Earth’s natural resources, damaging its natural systems and compromising social stability by allowing the gap to widen between rich and poor. In short, we are consuming the future. Unless we radically re-think the way we live, the attitudes that fostered our development will also be the source of our downfall. Eminent scientist and environmentalist Ian Lowe tackles this crisis head on and points the way to a sustainable future. Incorporating the most recent data, he proposes fundamental changes to our values and institutions, offers far-reaching solutions and a vision of a healthier society - one that is humane, informed and ecologically minded. In this talk from late 2009 at Embiggen Books Ian Lowe speaks cogently about a range of environmental problems, drawing upon his recently revised book 'A Big Fix'.

                      Three people from Sweden travelled to 4 eco-communities: Munksegaard in Denmark, Brighton Earthship and Bedzed in South-England and The Lammas Settlement in Wales. In search for people who had decided to live a simpler life in balance with nature and resisted against our mainstream consumer society, they often received strong resistance from local politicians and authorities. What we discovered was a deep satisfaction and joy of life. Though the goal of this trip wasn't making a documentary about it, we felt it was important to document it anyway.
