Paradise Found - The Parable of the Natural Gardener

by Patrizia Marani Documentary Italia/Italy 2009 52'

Scascoli, province of Bologna, the Emilian Apennines. Gabriella, former actress, dedicated gardener and advocate of biological farming, has a dream: protect the environment starting from her own 1-hectare plot where she has created a sanctuary of rare and nearly extinct plant species, providing humble, spontaneously growing plants with the same care as their more noble counterparts. In her own backyard she is fighting a determined battle to preserve biodiversity and to show thousands of visitors from around the world how they too can do it. <%YOUTUBE=ci6hGdSkWbU%>
