This has nothing to do with growing vegetables, but you guys are all gardeners and lovers of plants so surely this is appropriate. The link leads to a 4-minute video about the growing of a living bridge in the mountains of India. It's amazing and inspiring! Hope you enjoy!

Here is a link that might be useful: Living Bridge Video

That Great, Thank You!
With all the trash on the NET, it is good to see some of the Good Stuff.
We in the Industrial age would cut down hundreds of tree to mine the metal to build a bridge that may last 300 hundreds or so. These people make a bridge that will last longer & kill not plant, but is a growing plant itself!

Glad you guys are liking it! I didn't remember, but my husband told me that Rudyard Kipling wrote about these living bridges and that he had been fascinated with the idea when he read it. Now he has had a chance to see one! I can't think of too many ideas of using living plants as structures, but I love it. I guess using certain shrubs as living fences is a little similar, but not on the same scale.

Thanks for sharing this. I watched it earlier this week while trying to wind down after spending 8+ hours in the emergency room with a relative. It helped my mind a lot.

It was heartwarming to see the older person work with the younger person on a project that would connect generations for a long time to come.
