Island School Marine Ecology teacher, Peter Zdrojewski, has been spreading the news of his friend and grad school advisor – Dr. Jonathan Scherch – who has recently put together a documentary “Sustainability in Exile.” The documentary is focused on his work with Tibetan refugees and their movement away from monoculture, corporate cash cropping and back to sustainable agriculture/permaculture. You can check out a preview of the movie here.
The film is part of the iPic Redmond Film Festival, focused on earth preservation, so if you enjoy the clip and would like to vote for it, please go to

Jonathan’s work has been inspiring and provides a much needed collaboration with an already distressed community. Hope you enjoy!
