Greenhorns  (20 min)
Severine von Tscharner Fleming
This spring found young farmers as unlikely poster children of a new zeitgeist.

Wild Water (25min)
Anson Fogel
Journey into the soul of whitewater, into the places only river runners can go. Meet the river-people who share a deep passion for wild places, rivers and running whitewater. We cross beyond generational and experiential boundaries, even beyond whitewater, to look at the soul of adventure sports and what they mean to all of us. www.wildwaterfilm.com

Slow the Flow (27min)
Elizabeth Pepin Silva
Meet a landscaper who shocks his neighbors by putting in native landscaping. Discover a school district that goes green. Meet a non-profit which puts gardens in the city. The projects highlighted are very low-tech, cheap, and beautiful, making a good argument for kicking back and not raking the leaves. www.potreroindustries.com, www.surfrider.org/ofg.asp

As It Happens (21 min)
Renan Ozturk
In January 2010, Renan Ozturk & Cory Richards boarded planes bound for the Everest region of Nepal. Their goal was not only to establish a new alpine climb on 21,320 ft Tawoche, but also to tell the story from the field. With digital cameras, solar energy, a satellite modem, and two laptops, they shot, edited, and transmitted their journey from the Himalaya. Using online social media, their story was followed by over 100k people in real time. Warning: Language. www.camp4collective.com

What Folks are Saying!

We took the Murphy's tour on Saturday with Shelby. It was great fun. A good balance between food, wine and shopping. Shelby told us about the history of Murphy's but we also got to know who's who in the wine and restaurant business today. Good behind the scenes info. Loved the olive oil & balsamic vinegar store. The owners of the shops were happy to see us and treated us well. Highly recommended.
