About the event

Arrive from 6pm for tea and cake. At around 6.30pm we'll kick off with a short talk from Robert and Sebastiana Black about Ecotherapy East. We'll then have a screening of the film (with big thanks to Emily for use of her yoga studio and projector). 

The film is 1 hr 30 mins long, and will be followed by more tea and cake and space to reflect on the themes of the film. (But feel free to leave after the film at around 8:30 if you don't want to stay for that bit). 

Ecotherapy East crowdfunder - suggested donation: £10

We're inviting folk to contribute £10 for a ticket to this event; 80% of which will go to Ecotherapy East and 20% to the Gathering Gates. You're welcome of course to contribute more – or less if £10 is a stretch for you. 

Donate here (via the Norwich Contemplative Forum) to confirm your place

You can also contribute through bringing cakes, home-made fermented (non-alcoholic) drinks, and speciality teas, for which we will be inviting further donations on the evening. Let us know if you'd like to contribute in this way.

The Biggest Little Farm

If you're passionate about restoring biodiversity and living systems, or just curious about what's possible when we give nature a chance, you'll love this film. 

Check out the trailer here

It chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland – and as they live out their dream to work the land in harmony with nature. 

They face many obstacles along the way, through which they persevere, trusting the land and the non-human inhabitants to show them the way – and nature doesn't let them down. Through it all they demonstrate a biodiverse design that surpasses their wildest imagination. 

When I watched this film it had me in tears, seeing what could be possible. With faith and commitment, we really could turn around both ecological and cultural degradation, and learn to live and thrive in harmony with the earth.
