DEEPLY ROOTED: John Coykendall’s Journey to Save Our Seeds and Stories - DVD - $25 for the DVD

John Coykendall is a renowned heirloom seed saver, a classically trained artist, and Master Gardener at Blackberry Farm, one of America's top resorts. He has spent half his life working to preserve the seeds and stories of a small Louisiana farming community.

Since 1973, he has made an annual pilgrimage to Louisiana to record the oral histories and growing techniques, recipes, and folktales of Louisiana farmers and gardeners in more than 80 beautifully illustrated journals. He has saved and safeguarded rare varieties of the crops they once grew and handed them back to the community they came from.

His work inspires us to reconnect with the land, with the seeds and growing expertise that our ancestors passed on to us, to grab hold and pass that legacy on to future generations- while there is still time.

A Summer of Birds DVD - $25

Alive! In America’s Delta: Black Bear Comeback DVD - $25.00

By the early 1990s, there were estimated to be fewer than 300 Louisiana black bears left in the world. More than 80% of their bottomland forest habitat had been lost, converted to agriculture and destroyed for development. Habitat fragmentation, human disturbance and over hunting decimated populations once abundant throughout Louisiana, Southern Mississippi and Eastern Texas.

One of sixteen subspecies of American black bear, these shy but curious creatures were immortalized as the inspiration for the “Teddy Bear” during an infamous bear hunt in the early 1900’s. Today, thanks to an aggressive, broad-based effort to reestablish this endangered animal and restore its habitat through improved land management, high-tech monitoring and public education, the Louisiana black bear is on its way to being removed from protected status.

Find out why this bear has captured America’s imagination and adoration for more than a century, and the lengths some will go to save them.

The Vietnam War: Louisiana Stories DVD - $25

In the 1960’s and 70’s thousands of Louisianans in uniform entered a world of combat in a war that divided our nation. When it was over, some 58,000 Americans were killed and among those were almost one-thousand of our own.

And now, nearly 50 years later, Louisiana’s Vietnam War veterans have come to tell the stories of where and how they served.

Atchafalaya Houseboat DVD - $25

The Atchafalaya is a mysterious land, as much underwater as above. Its lush environment is home to alligators, egrets, black bears – and for a time two people who yearned for a simple, natural life. Atchafalaya Houseboat shares the experiences of Gwen Roland and her companion Calvin Voisin, who left civilization in the turmoil of the early 1970s for the unspoiled beauty of the nation’s largest river swamp, Louisiana’s Atchafalaya Basin.

Along their journey, they befriended photographer C.C. Lockwood, who shared their love of the basin’s endangered beauty. Lockwood’s stunning photographs of the Atchafalaya, featuring Gwen and Calvin, were published in National Geographic magazine.

Discover what drew Gwen and Calvin into the Atchafalaya Basin’s breathtaking beauty and see Lockwood’s stunning photographs of the couple in this natural wilderness.

Fats Domino: Walkin' Back to New Orleans - $25.00

The story of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's harrowing rescue during Hurricane Katrina and his triumphant, and possibly final, return to the stage for a benefit concert almost two years after the storm.

Domino's concert, captured in high definition, was no small feat for the shy performer who, throughout his six decade music career, has never been comfortable in the spotlight. Still shaken by the devastating impact Katrina had on his city and his life, Fats took the stage to raise money for the post-Katrina rebuilding effort. In the process, he lifted the spirit of the entire city.

In addition to some of Fats' greatest hits performed live in concert at legendary New Orleans music club, Tipitina's, the program gives audiences an up-close, never before seen look into the life and storied career of the reluctant music legend. In a rare interview with Fats, viewers gain insight into this humble performer and how he changed music without even trying.
