Garden Insects Used in University Class

Last night, we received a call from a professor who teaches the organic farming course at Oklahoma State University. She received a copy of the Garden Insects DVD through a donation made possible by the grant we received from RSF Social Finance. The grant made it possible for us to donate over 200 copies of Garden Insects to public schools and libraries. The women called to tell Chris how much she appreciated the film, how much her students benefited from it, and that she will be using it each semester as part of her University curriculum. She closed the conversation by saying, “Tell him to keep making films!”

The funny part is that while we were on the phone, Chris was in the other room, his face buried in the manual for his new camera, a still camera capable of recording images at pre-set intervals (every three seconds, etc..). This will allow him to document natural events that occur over time (time laspe) such as seeds sprouting or ice forming overnight on plants.
