AWAKE, A Dream From Standing Rock Documentary - Must See!

I recently watched this documentary, 'Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock,' in Port Angeles, WA with about 50 people at the Lower Elwha Klallam tribal center. It was very powerful.  I went with my friend Terry D. who spent 100 days at Standing Rock. This should be on mainstream television, but of course it won't be. America, wake up!

Syntropic Agriculture

Here is a youtube of a guy in Brazil that has come up with something he calls Syntropic Agriculture.  Very much along the lines of permaculture and analog forestry. Great example of a large-scale system (1200 acres). Ecologically and economically looks good.  Some of it is pretty straight-lined but some looks wilder. "Life in Syntropy" is the new short film from Agenda Gotsch made specially to be presented at COP21 - Paris. This film put together some of the most remarkable experiences in Syntropic Agriculture, with brand new images and interviews.
