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 Documentary by Christina Melton.

The production features 12 of Zachary Richard’s original songs, recorded LIVE at Baton Rouge’s Manship Theatre in February 2017.

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.

Award-winning nature photographer C. C. Lockwood is the foremost chronicler of this natural treasure.

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.
