Read our latest news for broadcast times for Follow that Tractor.
We’ve heard some very good news. BBC World Service have said “Yes please” to our idea of a radio documentary for broadcast this summer around the world. Why? Because we have a story with great pulling power.
In our programme Follow That Tractor we will be […]
It’s a remarkable thing that we often have to see in order to really hear. Engaging the visual sense can strengthen our capacity to hear a story – and remember and act on it. And it’s why Green Shoots are busier than ever producing films.
In East Africa, the innovative biopesticide and biocontrol company Real […]
Sometimes an anniversary simply sneaks up on you. We were surprised and delighted when the congratulations came in from LinkedIn to Green Shoots for five successful years in business. Five years: time to reflect.
Time for a count up
A thousand days our office has been open: sounds and feels impressive. So we decided to count up some […]
One of the best things about being commissioned to make films is meeting great people with fascinating businesses in interesting places. We were delighted to hot foot it to the fields of a leading farming family in southern Germany for the height of their asparagus harvest. Yes, Green Shoots were asked to shoot green shoots!
Germans prefer their asparagus white. We […]

Nine UK farmers had a fantastically inspiring time on the Green Shoots AgriTour of South Africa in November 2014.
In six days of travel through marvellously productive farmed Western Cape landscape they were able to see the best of good agricultural practice on all sorts of farms. They also witnessed the power of agriculture to do good.
One of the quickest, most effective and memorable ways to inspire is through film. We can all have the technology at our fingertips: a phone to film on, a keyboard to edit with (if some nips and tucks and a music track enhance it) and finally a connection to the internet to share it with.
