There is a saying that says chop wood and carry water. In this episode we explore the possiblity of finding a sponsor or donor to our project, Three Rivers Farm and a Hypervillage. Finding the right company to stand by can be risking seeing as everyone is on the sustainable/green bandwagon. Its also difficult finding a sponsor that offers all that Fiskars Group offers. There is much work to be done at Three Rivers farm, much pruning, bushwacking and overwall home and garden work. You cannot go wrong with an Axe that offers a lifetime warranty and after using it can say that she (fiskars x27) is going to help me attain enlightment and if not, well I will have plenty of wood for this winter!

Watch- What’s Possible a New Film for World Leaders on the Urgency of Global WarmingGreat scripting and having a narrator such as Morgan Freeman doesnt hurt, nor does the filmwork of Louie Schwartzberg. Great message and very inspirational, but the reality is things are moving so fast that its possible that we are beyond the point of no return and while we cannot stop climate change we can better prepare for the world ahead by taking actions now!
So we made it to Three Rivers Farm and came across two fruiting trees. One a asian cherry plum and another called Aronia Berry. Perfect for a Locavore episode.
