Sunday Night Movie - Moonflower blooming

Since it's a full moon tomorrow, tonight's movie shows a beautiful moonflower blooming. The caption at the beginning says it is in real time. The movie is only 1 min, 32 seconds so next summer I expect to watch a few of these with my own eyes!

The moonflower is similar to the morning glory in that its blossoms only last one day.

Sunday Night Movie - The Garden of Eatin'

There is a new campaign to encourage President Obama to lead by example and plant a vegetable garden on the White House lawn. According to the people behind www.eattheview.com,

"This animated video is part of the "Eat the View" campaign to turn part of the White House's 18 acre lawn back into an edible landscape. The video tells the story of the "America's Garden" from 1800 when President John Adams planted the first "first vegetables" to feed his own family to the present day."

Here's their promotional video. It's well done and short (3 min, 20 sec)

Sunday Night Movie - The Official Meatrix I, II, II 1/2

Here are three funny cartoons that tell the not-so-funny story of factory farm development and the origins of our meat and animal products. These short, animated clips also give alternatives and a message of hope for better farming in the future. It all depends on our (consumers) choices.

Sunday Night Movie - Backyard Sustainability & Growing Food Around the House

Tonight we have two videos on surviving in your backyard. The first one is about a couple who is experimenting in backyard sustainability by growing as much food as they can in a suburban backyard. If time is short, skip the first 11 minutes of yapping on the front porch and get right into the garden tour.


The second video shows an example of how to grow a lot of food in your own backyard. There are only 2 minutes of yapping at the beginning of this one so just turn it up while you go to the fridge for a beverage.
