A new film: ‘The Green Backyard’

Here is a great new film from Peterborough about a project called ‘The Green Backyard’, which is developing a Transitioney/permaculturey/community resource/educational type thing in urban Peterborough.  Beautiful film, with talking bees and everything.  The Transition Companion makes an appearance too near the end… thanks to Daryl Mulvihill, who made it, for letting me know about it.

Lovely film. Especially loved the bees! Well done. Will add to In Transition 2 film´s status report on FB. What camera and mic did you use? Looks and sounds great.

Daryl’s done an amazing job 🙂 It’s so nice to see the bit at the end with the Transition Companion – that was when Peterborough in Transition was just an idea, now we’re going strong!

Was shot on a Canon 7d with a radio mic/ h4n for the sound.

Getting great feedback and a lot of views since it was posted here.
