I had these YouTube links sent to me by a good friend, Connor (Gareth) Jones from California, USA — a fellow Permie from the January Internship at Zaytuna farm this year (2010).
This movie, while only a story, struck a chord with me and I hope it will with you. Here is some information on the film taken from Wikipedia.
The Man Who Planted Trees (French title L’homme qui plantait des arbres), also known as The Story of Elzéard Bouffier, The Most Extraordinary Character I Ever Met, and The Man Who Planted Hope and Reaped Happiness, is an allegorical tale by French author Jean Giono, published in 1953.
It tells the story of one shepherd’s long and successful singlehanded effort to re-forest a desolate valley in the foothills of the Alps near Provence throughout the first half of the 20th century. — Wikipedia (click for more details)
