The green teacher

Last Monday evening I saw the documentary “De Groene Hemel” (The Green Heaven) by Roel van Dalen on the Dutch public channels (Dutch only). It tells about teacher Bert Ydema who has been teaching school children in Amsterdam for 40 years about the value of nature, and thereby of life, by jointly growing a public garden with all kinds of vegetables and flowers over the course of a year. Very inspiring. Watch it here.
