ONE DROP MEADOW. My son the film maker has quit his day job, and following his dream, has begun a series of UTubes about the transformation of his Wellington, New Zealand garden from jungle to paradise. One Drop Meadow.
So grab a cup of coffee and 10 minutes and have a look at this new and pretty funky gardening video. The first show has a lot of content. This is the premiere. Lots of demolition and recovery. It is literally groundbreaking. He has, literally, a lot of ground to cover.
I quite like the way his work evolves from the beginning to the end of this short segment. As his garden gets tamed Sam himself seems to get rangier and wilder. This will be an exciting adventure in both gardening and film making.
Sam is a natural documenter and a passionate gardener. On subsequent clips he will be interviewing experts, gardeners and farmers in New Zealand and we will be following along as he applies this new knowledge to his own sunny hillside terraced garden.
To watch the first of these clips go here.
I will keep you in the loop. I am learning about utube myself but I think you can comment on there too. Sam would love to hear your thoughts and even suggestions for future shows. Or leave comments here for him and he will drop in to visit and answer any of your questions and suggestions when he wakes up on the other side of the world.
In Sam’s words:
“Join me for the first episode of the ‘One Drop Meadow’ saga. We check out the garden for the first time and see what’s under all that heavy undergrowth.
One Drop Meadow is an epic gardening joyride into the unknown. We are trying to transform our hostile overrun backyard into a lush utopia.
Along the way we are going to speak to gardening gurus and experts. We will learn about all the green things and maybe some other colours too. Join us for the adventure!”
A couple of his newly minted social media places. The links are on his utube page. Do I call it a page?
Please share. And thank you.
Have a great day.
