“Watch this natural Kiwi miracle: how the earth regenerates native bush if given half a chance.” – Bunny McDiarmid, Executive Director Greenpeace International

“Fools and Dreamers tells the most important story of our time.” – Paul Hawken, founder Project Drawdown

Fools & Dreamers is a 30-minute documentary telling the story of Hinewai Nature Reserve, on Canterbury’s Banks Peninsula, and its kaitiaki/manager of 30 years, botanist Hugh Wilson. We learn about the commitment of Hugh and the Maurice White Native Forest Trust to regenerate marginal, hilly farmland into native forest, using a minimal interference method that allows nature to do the work, giving life to over 1500 hectares of native forest, waterways, and the creatures that live within them. After the film we will have a discussion with Paul Broady, a regular WEA lecturer on science who also owns land adjacent to the Hinewai Nature Reserve.
