1. Hey Julia!

    I am enjoying my first full moon as a subscriber.

    This story reminded me of our efforts here on Bowen Island to start a transition town group. If you haven’t heard of it, there is an explanation, and quite a few resources for small scale community groups here:

    I was a part of this group for a few years on Bowen, and we did some good things – organizing annual sustainability tours of the island to see what others were doing on their properties, buying fruit trees in bulk, organizing an infra-red camera to come to the community to measure heat loss to improve energy efficiency in homes, a fix-it fair where people brought broken stuff and local volunteers helped to fix it,… There were lots of good projects. I’m not sure if the group is still running at this point. I have lost touch with it myself. But the transition town movement is still going strong, and there are a couple of good books available packed with ideas on how to organize at the grass roots level.

    • Thanks Rob! Sounds like wonderful work on Bowen. Yes, aware of Transition towns and that’s all part of it, isn’t it? Keeping us all connected. Thanks again! 🙂
