Spud, I looked for the full video and did not find it. The trailer piques my curiously. I will put a Google Alert on the film and let you know if I find it. Please let me know if you do.

This piece interests me because of the ideas for a potential project at Laura's home in the woods. They live eight miles out of small town, Newport, WA and on the north side of Mt. Spokane. Their plot is 17 acres in a beautiful forest. It is not first growth, but third growth. Their home sits on a small hill left over from the Ice Age. I think it is a terminal moraine. The lower part of their land is the former ancient lake, now a meadow created by the Lake Missoula Floods.
One of the family members is a wildlife enthusiast, another is a millwright in a lumber mill. They both have a lot of mechanical skills and knowledge of the forest. I am so unfamiliar with gentle men, and they are as gentle as gentle giants. I know it is safe to trust them with children. They seem eager to help me plan and construct a nature reserve there.

It sounds like bread-baking weather to me!

Joan. thanks fir the Carol Deppe reference. she's written a number of books. I think i need to depend less on ebooks and read some paper ones like hers.

Its -16*C & snowing heavily here.

Spud, great video! I wonder what the future holds, for all of the people disconnected from nature? I am lucky - it's all around me.

Be careful Joan! No need to go out in the ice and snow, Spring will be here before you know it!

I am SO antsy to get out and plant the few trees I ordered... one American persimmon, one pawpaw, and 2 for containers, a genetic dwarf apricot and an olive. May never see anything from those, it's just about the doing.

This morning, on Idaho Public Television, I saw an hour show called "Mother Nature's Child: Growing outside in the Media Age", and I liked it a lot.  I thought it showed the benefits that children get by learning by being out in nature.  Similar to gardening.

I couldn't find the whole hour show, just this 8 minute piece:

A few more inches of snow last night and more expected. The ice remains under new snow. Hazardous walking and driving continue. I'm all tucked in nicely with lots of reading and writing to do. I am weeks behind in reading my mail.
