Degrowth

Here is a link to CBC’s Ideas show on degrowth. It is a thoughtful look at how keeping it simple and small can be good for us AND good for the planet. It’s worth a listen:

Welcome to Spring…?

After a long, snowy, blowy winter we are finally thinking about spring. Join us at the next Transition gathering on Wednesday, March 26 as we pack in a lot of activities, and hopefully some cake and visiting as well. We’ll be gathering at Bruce Peninsula District School.

At 6:30 we’ll be hosting what Tina believes is the 5th Annual Seed Exchange. Bring your seeds, pots, extra supplies and anything else you have to share with other gardeners. At 7:15 Jim is hosting a showing of the Canadian-made documentary Petropolis. This film examines the impacts of the Alberta Tar Sands from the amazing perspective from the air.

Here’s a link to the HD trailer:

Please join us for this important film, and a great evening with people who are really happy to be out of the iron-grip of winter.
