Making an environmental film like Hometown Habitat takes a lot of money. We were in production for 2 ½ years, traveling the country to profile habitat heroes and tell their inspiring stories. The price tag, $223,000. Filmmaking is a very expensive endeavor.
As an independent filmmaker, I have reached out for support from nurseries, native plant societies, master gardeners, environmental groups and individuals who believe native plants are critical to the survival and vitality of local ecosystems. Generally, these organizations don’t have the resources to put together an education project like this, yet all will benefit from the awareness this film brings to people everywhere. Hometown Habitat, Stories of Bringing Nature Home, is all about flipping the landscaping paradigm, turning people on to the power of native plants to provide ecosystem services and support for birds, bees, butterflies and wildlife.
