Summary
Edens Lost and Found highlights what communities all across the country are doing to revive their ecosystems and, as a result, improve the quality of life of all its citizens. Award-winning filmmakers Harry Wiland and Dale Bell herald an exciting sea change in the reltionship between ordinary citzens, environmental groups, and local government. This PBS special series witnesses and records a new spirit of cooperation among neighbors, planners, architects and builders, city officials, and government agencies. Philadelphia: The Holy Experiment, hosted by actor and Philadelphia resident David Morse, describes how concerned citizens like activists Doris Gualtney and Iris Brown, muralist Jane Golden, sculptor Lily Yeh, musician Kenny Gamble, gardener Mary Corby, restauranteur Judy Wicks, grieving father Ed Elliss, and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's "Philly Green" initiative spawned by Joan. Reilly, Jane Pepper and Blaine Bonham, Jr. have all combined to grow a new title - "Farmadelphia" - for the city founded by William Penn in honor of his father. The present-day "greening" of Philadelphia has many diverse and energetic faces but none is more dominant than its founder who laid out a groundwork for an Eden-like green, inhabitable city in the early 1700's, that is now being fulfilled.
