Telling a story—a remarkable story

We’ve taken our show on the road—complete with cameras, a drone and all sorts of sundry filmmaking equipment. Greetings, from beautiful Joplin, Missouri!

This is a story that we’ve been so excited to tell—and now we are. A story of community resilience—how Joplin has recovered from unthinkable devastation from the EF5 tornado that ravaged the town nearly 6 years ago—and how nature has played a leading role in this recovery, in the form of a meaningful community healing garden.

Joplin Butterfly Garden—Tornado Path Wall

It’s incredible, really, chronicling this path. Hearing the individual stories of hope, rebirth, and renewal. Capturing the spirit and energy of a community—empowered by a vision and the fortitude to see it through. With truly inspiring results.

Watch this space over the next couple weeks! We’ll be sure to keep you posted as we go!
