The man who planted trees. I love this one.
I'm familiar with the little book of the same name. All the films about this that I found in my search are 30 minutes though. Shorter films (ten minutes or less) are better for the attention span of the audience who are new to the concepts. Do you know of any shorter synopsis of the idea?
The only thing that I do not like about the concept of using this resource is that the fictional account is based on the idea in history that charcoal making was responsible for the original deforestation, and although this might the final factor in the forest's demise, I doubt that it was the sole factor. It does not take into account, from my recollection, the clearing of the greater forest for pasturage or that shepherding and free-ranging can also create this pattern. Regardless, the other issue that I have with that is the potential misconceptions that this could bring in regards to the benefits of the appropriate use of sustainable
production to create biochar
, which could have the opposite effect.
Perhaps a shorter film with the addition of a biochar one?
I do like the idea of a video
about planting trees. I had looked up a bunch involving agro-forestry yesterday. I think
that agroforestry and silvi-pasture models with the addition of some intensive food forestry models are probably the directions that my Valley should
head. I haven't found a good enough
video to show yet.
