Thinking Like Water is a documentary film project that offers a front row seat to Bill Zeedyk and his proteges who are transforming degraded wetlands and drylands into more resilient ecosystems – girding against the ravages of drought and climate change.
As the film nears completion, the production team is seeking donations to support the work and its distribution to a wide audience.

Soil profile.jpg

This four part series addresses what soil really is, what soil health looks like, and  how this relates to erosion, sediment accumulation, water conservation in the soil, and getting plants to grow. You will be introduced to the Five Soil Health Principles and learn how to conduct simple terrain measurements and soil observations to evaluate soil health conditions. The series was presented by Jan-Willem Jansens of Ecotone Landscape Planning, with support from Embudo Valley Library & Community Center, New Mexico Department of Agriculture’s Soil Health Program, and Quivira Coalition.

Healthy Soils Webinar Series

Garden Soil

This three part series addresses the ecology of PJ ecosystems, both below and above ground, and what interactions take place between the surface and soil ecology. The webinars will identify local soil conditions and how to improve them. You will learn more about indicators of PJ ecosystem health below and above-ground, erosion and sedimentation in PJ ecosystems, how plants are connected through fungal networks, how the soil microbiome accumulates carbon, to what extent the soil system stores water, and the role of fire. The series was presented by Jan-Willem Jansens of Ecotone Landscape Planning and The Forest Stewards Guild, with support from the New Mexico Department of Agriculture’s Soil Health Program, and Glorieta Freedom Ranch.
