The beautiful, hopefully soon to be more bountiful, backyard butterfly; just one of the many subjects that award winning photographer and producer Dee Finning of Ventura, California and award winning writer and producer Linda Lou Crosby of Ingomar, Montana will cover to share the special things everyday people are doing to spruce up our planet. Their web series is called ©EcoNOOZ, The Global Gazette. “It will feature stories that pique our interest,” offered Finning, “stories that we can identify with, and share.” The butterfly story was a natural as one of Dee’s nearby friends has created an official butterfly sanctuary in her own backyard.
“We got curious. We started searching the web for other butterfly experiences. There are many out there,” added Finning. “We would never have known about them if we hadn’t begun our own butterfly adventure. “Videotaping butterflies was one of the most wonderful things I have ever done,” reflected Finning, who has traveled the world with her videography and photography. EcoNOOZ also features the many talents of animator, Andy Atkins also of Ventura, California. He added whimsy to our title with his special logo.
Keep your eye on the EcoNOOZ tab at virginmoon.com (Dee’s company) and ragweedadventures.com (Crosby’s website for her whimsical book “Adventures with Ragweed.) ” Looking for these neat stories is a lot of fun,” added Crosby.
Finning and Crosby have worked together for 20 years on projects ranging from transforming garbage into ash, to “Eyes on Africa” – a story of one woman who brought eye glasses to Africa with her charity, to a video on the newest predictive weather models.
“We are friends, who have had many exciting adventures with our projects and wanted to do something fun and wonderful that could make a difference,” said Finning.
“From straw bale houses to solar ovens, from songbirds to hugelkultur gardening, we are looking for what you are doing in your own way to create cool things for our planet,” says Crosby, who is working to build a permaculture based hugulkultur in her eastern Montana plains “backyard”.
What’s next? “I want to learn how to make a solar oven,” mused Crosby. “And I want to learn more about good bugs,” emphasized Finning. Whatever the next adventure brings, it will be interesting, fun, informative, and a perfect fit for ‘EcoNOOZ, The Global Gazette’. “We can’t wait to hear what you folks are doing out there,” said Finning. “
Drop a note…hmmmm…maybe we could do something about songbirds.”
