Hey lovely permies, just wanted to share this webinar that Zach Weiss is going to be doing next week. Thought some of ya might be interested. :)

In this Webinar, Elemental Ecosystems director Zach Weiss will share his experience on creating water retention landscapes, and will show how these earthworks can lead to dramatic ecosystem restoration, and the restoration of water supply and wildlife habitat. Zach will share how water retention spaces can reverse longstanding cycles of drought and soil loss, and actually create a feedback loop of ecosystem restoration that benefits people, animals, and fertility.

Also, Zach will present a brand new global platform for water cycle restoration and practical training during the webinar that you can take part in now.

Mar 25, 2021 11:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Also, if you haven't already checked out the Water Stories Online Education Platform that Zach and I and team are creating, please do! It is in the process of being built, but coming along nicely!

I want to laud how well constructed the trailer itself is; the astounding quality of the imagery, the pacing and tempo, and the intensity, is of truly cinematic quality.

(I also personally enjoyed the build-up to Sepp. Don't want to spoil any more than that)

Well done! As any good trailer should, this has me dancing with anticipation for when the film premieres.

Thank you Ash! I will pass on this message to the filmmakers!

Trampas Graham wrote:"Elemental Change"...what a fitting title for the time in which we live!  Thank you so much for creating this film...seeing something such as this reminds me that there is hope for humanity after all.  Best wishes and congratulations on undertaking such a beautiful and worthwhile creation.  

Thanks for the kind words Trampas. That is the hope: hope.

Laura Emil wrote:LOOKS powerfully important, i just tried to submit my name/email on the website form (to get details on when/where to watch the film), but "Something went wrong while submitting the form." Don't see a 'contact' option on the website, so thought i'd try to let you know here...

Hi Laura,

Thanks for letting us know. I just tested all the forms and they are working properly so maybe something was happening at the time that got fixed? Care to try again and let me know if it is still not working?
Hi Jordan, we were just discussing getting the trailer up on youtube soon. I will post it here when we end up doing that!
A message from Zach Weiss on World Water day on March 22nd: - "Water - every day I am more grateful for this vital element, and yet I feel I am just starting to scratch the surface of its significance. Today is world water day and the theme is water and climate, and how the two are inextricably linked. I think that's another connection where science is just starting to understand the significance of the relationship between the water cycle and global heat dynamics. That's why for the past two years I've been working on a film to bring this connection to life - and show how humans can act to restore a healthy water cycle for all life on earth."

The water cycle is one of the most important drivers of climate. If we challenge our relationship with water, it will allow us to see today's environmental crises in a new light. The need for better water stewardship is the inspiration for Elemental Change.

Film Description

Elemental Change illustrates the water cycle and its importance to life on Earth, through stories of people successfully reversing environmental degradation.

Today, traditional knowledge holders, agroecologists, and eco-entrepreneurs see solutions where many have given up hope -- the elemental change possible when humans act in step with nature's cycles.

This independently-funded documentary aims to create a movement that empowers communities across the globe to create solutions for their local environmental challenges.

Hi everyone, just wanted to pop in and share a new video that we've released over at Elemental Ecosystems.

This is the second year of our water restoration project at Tabula Farms.  Over a dry, hot summer, we installed a stock pond and earthworks which would hydrate the landscape and capture the seasonal rains.  If we work with nature, we can restore any landscape back to ecological health.  Watch this film and share it to see how water can restore damaged land and bring balance.

UPDATE: This tryout opportunity is no longer available, as we have already selected participants for it, but if you are interested in further opportunities and would like to be contacted about those, you can still contact us through our website.

As some of you know, Elemental Ecosystems is rapidly expanding and so we are in the process of organizing a tryout for employment. Our goal in hosting this event is to identify those that would be a good fit to work with our project crew in the future. This event will be a week-long tryout for our team to work with those interested in taking on our type of water restoration work for their livelihoods. It will be a test period to identify those who are a good fit.

The tryout will take place in early October 2019, in Southeastern Montana.

If you are interested, please contact us through our website, Elemental Ecosystems, and we will send you more information.
