Tim Robson is my suburban gardening hero too Gavin (and he only lives 15 mins from my house...although has 3-4 times more space than me). I have taken on his tip of the organza bags for fruit fly protection (but I buy them in bulk online) - and they work a treat. BTW - I love the flashmob vid too.
Great videos Gavin. You're right about that 4th one, definitely weird but none the less effective with its message. The final video made me a little nostalgic. Pete Cundall was (and still is) an amazing gardener and huge inspiration to me. I would avidly watch Gardening Australia for a glimpse of him and his veggie beds down in Tassie.
I really liked the Blue Man Group video, it had some punch. A long standing favourite "green" video is Annie Leonard's "The Story of Stuff": http://www.storyofstuff.org/movies-all/story-of-stuff/. When I was looking for it to give you the link, I came across this little gem from Bill McKibben: http://www.yesmagazine.org/planet/the-fight-against-fossil-fuel-giants-is-the-fight-of-our-time.
Cheers Dawn, thanks for the Bill McKibben link. It is a great videoGav x
I love that flash mob video, hilarious!I think I would have curled up and died of embarassment in her position! Have never heard of Tim Robson before, but I love what he's done with his garden. I have a new allotment, and if it EVER stops raining in the UK, I aim to achieve something similar. I hope!
