Abstract "This new documentary tells the inspiring story of a sustainable agro-forestry community in Trinidad, West Indies, called Fondes Amandes, led by a charismatic Rastafarian woman, Akilah Jaramogi. Three decades ago Akilah settled on a barren, deforested hillside, blighted with floods in the rainy season and fires in the dry season. Together with her late husband, Tacuma, they started a family and reforested over 150 acres, restoring health to the hills and the watershed just outside the capital city of Port-of-Spain. When her husband died, Akilah continued this great work, initiating the Fondes Amandes Community Reforestation Project (FACRP), training community members as stewards of the forests and waters. Today Fondes Amandes is a thriving village atop a flourishing forest of 150 acres where residents have planted about 60,000 seedlings over the past 30 years. The community is regularly visited by international dignitaries and Akilah is heralded as the Wangari Maathai of Trinidad & Tobago"--WWW home page of video.
Abstract "Earth Water Woman spotlights the Fondes Amandes Community Re-Forestation Project in Trinidad and Tobago and its charismatic leader, Akilah Jaramogi, in their ongoing efforts to transform the barren hillsides into a vibrant, healthy ecosystem. A micro solution for the macro problem of climate change, this documentary urges viewers everywhere to examine their relationship to Mother Earth" -- Container.
