Wee are interested in all kinds of projects that inspire wholistic health and nature reconnection. Protecting native ecosystems, reestablishing the human relationship to the wild, and generally helping life to blossom. Whilst the work so far has been mostly media related, with our short films, this year 2013 we will develop more practical and ambitious projects such as Game Changer and The Regeneration described below to help make a real impact in the physical world. We will still use the little movies as a great, fun way to publicize other great work being done in the community and gather interest and support.
The aim of the short movies is to make them upbeat, funny and educational with a playful childlike perspective on life Most have been completed solo by the ‘main character’, and some collaboratively with music and performance by enviro-focused artists and even kids themselves!
Here is a play list of wee earthling movies!
There is footage for probably a dozen of these films sitting in line to be edited.
With titles such as ‘Project Love’ about ways to create lovely thoughts in others through art and stickers. Mud Skippers – profiling an incredible amphibious fish who patrol the mangroves of Queensland Australia. Exercitement – about ridiculously invigorating ways to exercise! and so forth.
You can visit the wee earthling youtube channel to see the ones we’ve made so far!
This is a practical project for people and plants.
We want to create programs to promote propagation! That’s right! To grow things!
So the aim is to grow things – especially trees and edible perennial plants, reclaim urban land for planting purposes, protect places from from clearing and helping to regenerate healthy spaces for all creatures.
One of the ways of doing this is to facilitate “Propagation Stations” – Simple setups to sprout seeds and do cuttings, perhaps incorporating compost facilities, shade areas, and benches, aswell as salvaging recycled pots.
Plants will be used to help regenerate denuded areas, to grow food, and to sell seedlings to fundraise for new propagation stations. The vision is to eventually ‘branch out’ to schools, orphanages, and prisions – as a part of nature therapy programs, science and environmental education curriculum, and providing nutritious food for communities.
We’re starting sort of small. With a single nut.
Macadamia nuts are one of the most important Australian bush foods, wonderfully tasty and highly nutritious, but these beautiful trees are endangered in the wild due to extensive land clearing. Propagating Macadamia trees is a fit focus to kick off the Regeneration project. They are relatively easy to sprout, very lovely and they promote healthy eating (just by being utterly delicious!). An advanced tree can sell for $80 at a nursery – but a single nut to propagate can be obtained for free if you know where to look! We are hopeful of working with the Macadamia community of Australia to get kids and older folks to help propagate and grow Macadamia trees to plant out in regeneration projects, and to sell to good homes, helping propagate the program further and see how it grows!
This is a techo community building solution to enable a resource based economy. Making it convenient to salvage, swap, share and reward physical items with people in your local area. Our aim here is to make buying a last resort. We have so much to spare, yet most of it is wasted. This web service and app will keep thousands of tonnes of materials circulation each year, and totally change the attitude buying stuff… sound ambitious?! Check it out!
