TRANSITION TOWN TOTNES ANNUAL SUMMER GARDEN CRAWL (40 minutes, 2009, The Metabolic Studio)
A Transition Initiative is a community working together to look Peak Oil and Climate Change squarely in the eye and address this big question: "for all those aspects of life that this community needs to sustain itself and thrive, how do we significantly increase resilience (to mitigate the effects of Peak Oil) and drastically reduce carbon emissions (to mitigate the effects of Climate Change)?" Learn more about Transition Initiatives and get a first hand look at a variety of gardens in Totnes, UK, during the town's second annual Summer Garden Crawl.

RUTH STOUT'S GARDEN (23 minutes, 1976, Arthur Mokin)
Ruth Stout's Garden is a lively film journey into the life of a woman who, from a perspective of more than ninety years, has a great deal to offer young and old. Filmed in her tenth decade, Ruth continued to write books, contribute to periodicals, lecture to garden clubs and receive thousands of visitors interested in her garden. Those who have read her books will be excited to see her famous "no dig/no work" method of gardening in action.

FREE EVENT! EVERYONE WELCOME!
