YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip): 50 States. 1 Year. Zero Garbage? Called to action by a planet in peril, three friends hit the road - traveling with hope, humor, and all of their garbage - to explore every state in America (the good, the bad...and the weird) in search of the extraordinary innovators and citizens who are tackling humanity's greatest environmental crises. As the YERT team layers outlandish eco-challenges onto their year-long quest, an unexpected turn of events pushes them to the brink in this award-winning docu-comedy. Featuring Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, Will Allen, Janine Benyus, Joel Salatin, David Orr, and others.
While many of the solutions they explore are probably known to the more advanced among this group, the movie is hilarious, and an engaging take on the myriad issues we face as a nation and planet. One of the film-makers will be on-hand for the showing to answer questions, probably crack some jokes, etc.
A good movie, a little overwhelming, so I bought a DVD to review and take notes! It gives me more hope than reading the Oregonian everyday. Good for those guys for taking a step and making it happen. This is what the change we want is all about.
Not exactly a comedy but a good movie. I wish it was easier to get to know people at these events. This was my second event and I didn't see any of the people I met at the first event. I have some first names floating around in my head but by the time I see them again I will have forgotten what they look like! LOL
Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human habitats, in harmony with the larger ecosystems of which they are a part. Anyone can use it: starting where they are, with what they have.
This group is a great place to learn about regenerative design, urban agriculture, animal husbandry, edible fungi, bioremediation, aquaculture, rainwater harvesting, local food systems, alternative economics, community living, soil-building, and much much more...
