Landfillharmonic

"People realize that we shouldn't throw trash away carelessly ...Well, we shouldn't throw people away either" ~Favio Chavez, orchestra director:

Teaser for the upcoming documentary "Landfill Harmonic." The film introduces the town of Cateura, a slum in Paraguay built atop a landfill where residents have created music from the trash heaped upon them. Scouring the rubbish, the determined music-lovers have built violins, cellos, and other classical instruments, resulting in the "Recycled Orchestra."

"Doing the best you can with what you have for as long as you have it." That's my definition of stewardship.
