Gardens of California ® LLC
I am very excited to present the following documentaries as an educational resource for all of our visitors and encourage you to watch each and every one under the Lets Talk Food, Water, Planet us category.
Our adaptive horticulture selections reflect special needs populations that I have enjoyed working with over the years. The documentaries, largely food and think, have validated every extra moment I have taken to grown, preserve and care for my own edibles.
Many of us have family members who have special needs be it Alzheimers, autism, depression, obesity, or any particular hardship. Please invite these folks to watch the presentations with you. Together, hand and hand, we make big differences.
Please share your recommended documentaries / movies and reviews of the ones I have listed on this site by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All listed movies / documentaries are avavilable through Netflix or your PBS stations. You may access the Alzheimers link diectly from this page.
Also, please note, all selections are made based on content interest, not political interest or statement and are not rated but reviewed.
