This is a post by my friend Vlada, from New Zealand, which I decided to share because of the great accomplishment that this New Zealander has achieved.

Host a screening – we've made this film free but if you're holding a public screening you'll need a license. We've made the fees very low to be accessible to all communities and we'll be splitting the income with Hinewai Reserve. Check out http://foolsanddreamers.com to learn more about the film and screening licences.

Thank you for your support!

Fools & Dreamers:

Regenerating a Native Forest is a 30-minute documentary about Hinewai Nature Reserve, on New Zealand’s Banks Peninsula, and its kaitiaki/manager of 30 years, botanist Hugh Wilson.

When, in 1987, Hugh let the local community know of his plans to allow the introduced ‘weed’ gorse to grow as a nurse canopy to regenerate farmland into native forest, people were not only skeptical but outright angry – the plan was the sort to be expected only of “fools and dreamers”.

Now considered a hero locally and across the country, Hugh oversees 1500 hectares resplendent in native forest, where birds and other wildlife are abundant and 47 known waterfalls are in permanent flow. He has proven without doubt that nature knows best – and that he is no fool.

Thank you! I wish Vlada the best!

Thanks, Rosie, I will relay your wishes. 

I love this! Thank you for sharing. This should be happening more and more around the world.

Yes, dear Luna, that is why I posted it here. 

We should imitate his behavior and do things like this some more...
