You Can't Compost Concrete on KCET.org

The Echo Park Film Center curated a collection of short films called Sustainable LA for the Silver Lake Film Festival last year; I made a short called You Can't Compost Concrete to be part of the program. Making the film--with much editing help from Lisa at the EPFC--was very fun, and it made me appreciate that much more what she and Paolo and the other supercool folks over there do for the community teaching filmmaking to kids and seniors for free and others for almost free. They also have a wonderful microcinema screening noncommercial gems you simply could not view anywhere else.
If you weren't one of the 15 or so people who got up on a Sunday morning to watch the Sustainable LA program when it was shown on a big screen in Los Feliz, now's your chance to catch a bunch of green-themed shorts, including You Can't Compost Concrete and How to Build a Self-Watering Container by my heros at Survive LA streaming at KCET.org.

UCLA Hannah Carter Japanese Garden

This garden is one of my favorite places in LA. Nusia enjoys it quite a bit, too.


Nusia was reluctant at first, but she has learned the joy of splashing in puddles while wearing boots. And there is no turning back.
