Sister Loyola is one of the liveliest nonagenarians you could ever meet. As the main gardener at the Home of Compassion in Island Bay, Wellington, her daily tasks include heavy lifting alongside vigorous spade and wheelbarrow work, which she sometimes performs on crutches. Loyola and the other Sisters of Compassion follow the vision of Mother Aubert to ‘meet the needs of the oppressed and powerless in their communities’.
This project started with video from a three day workshop. The workshop covered the earthworks for building a pond without a liner, a swale, and a hugelkultur bed on a terrace. Then we added more footage by doing the same workshop over again in a colder climate. A year later, we returned to the first workshop site and added even more footage! We even had an evaluation by the Crown Prince of Permaculture, Geoff Lawton.
The nearly-complete Nocturnal Gardening considers how communities come together through alternative and pre-colonial uses of land. Structured around four central storylines, the video explores indigenous land rights, off-the-grid subsistence, racism and injustice in the food system and the consequences of consumer behaviour on farm animals. —Tate Modern
Hart's Forest Gardening introduces a way of working alongside nature- an approach that results in great productivity with minimal maintenance, and a method for transforming even a small cottage garden into a diverse and inviting habitat for songbirds, butterflies, and other wildlife. Based on the model of a natural woodland, a forest garden incorporates a wide variety of useful plants, including fruit and nut trees, perennial herbs, and vegetables. Robert Hart blends history, philosophy, anthropology, and seasonal gardening wisdom, which together comprise a remarkable testament to the pleasures of "hands-off" as well as hands-on gardening. Practical features include: Design guidelines for creating your own perennial food-producing garden Lists of recommended plants and varieties, An explanation of how plants in different levels or "stories" --from ground covers to full-sized trees--coexist and interact in a healthy and productive landscape.
Gardening by the Yard is an American gardening show that airs weekly on HGTV and is hosted by master-gardener Paul James. It premiered in 1996. HGTV states that Gardening by the Yard is for people who want their yards to look great but don't have time to spend on them. James focuses on the lighter side of gardening and practices organic gardening. Topics include composting, correct watering, plant zones, vegetable gardens, planting plants that are natural to your area, and many other gardening basics. Most of the show is taped in James' Tulsa, OK backyard. James is not afraid to show flaws in his yard as he claims this makes the show a real gardening program. James will also have occasional guest gardeners give their own tips for specific fruit and vegetable crops such as growing fruit trees in containers or designs for the garden. James often takes the show to locales across the country to visit other gardens or locally owned nurseries. The show has featured many guest stars over the years including James Gonzalez and Alexis Stewart. 2009 was expected to be the last year for the show as it has not been renewed. However, as of mid-2010, reruns are shown early weekday mornings. As of January 2012, the show no longer appears on HGTV's schedule, but visitors to HGTV.com can find short web-cast reruns of the show.
