As 2023 came to a close, Holly accepted Florida Environmental Film Festival (FEFF) Founder & President Elizabeth Pickett Gray's invitation to serve on the FEFF Advisory Board. What an honor!
The FEFF mission is to present environmental films and educational events that advocate for broadening our knowledge of environmental issues impacting Florida.
The Ei Rewilding Urban Landscapes Pilots (Ei Pilots) support the modern-day-gardening movement and showcase how lawns may be replaced with vegetable gardens and food forests; the Ei Pilots are aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. Located in Holly's spacious front and backyards, the Ei Pilots are easily accessible for tours.
On January 7, 2023 the FB group 941 Natural Gardeners hosted an Ei Pilots tour focused on the backyard food forest and the vegetable, herb and edible-flower garden. Nearly 30 intrigued local residents attended the Sunday morning tour. Though Holly lead the tour, the Ei Pilots Curator Zach Zildjian of ZZ Design Services was on site to answer in-depth and technical questions.

From a macro perspective, what we eat drives economic markets, commercial agriculture-crop choices and practices, societal justices and injustices, species extinction, and a myriad of other subtle and overt scenarios.
