Beki tries to find ways of identifying the problem and goes on a quest to solve it in the most earth friendly way. She finds solutions by asking people who know more than she does and applies it. The solution fails. What went wrong? It is then tweaked and it finally succeeds! Sometimes she goes online to find how other villages or towns have solved those problems. The tone of the show is funny and reinforced by colorful vibrant green lush of a tropical village.
