Living in a park and the 1m2 challenge: What would you do with your 1m2? Geoff Canham

What would a wildlife documentary about humans look like? Basic human habitat selection is not something people give a lot of conscious thought to. More plants and nature our community would bring what changes? What if we just focused on 1m2 each, to start with? Humans are the only species that want to make it better for ourselves. How much fun could we have with that? How good could it be? Why do it, what has succeeded elsewhere and what could we try?
