Growing local

is a crash course and very eloquent combination of all that is happening in Economy, Energy and Environment. It alos aske the question of how, in stead of perpetual growth, we can prosper: instead of constantly taking more, how can we be happy with having enough? Build resilience, build community, learn skills as per

To me, these are major questions that brought me to this forum, organic Farmshare, an electric bike and much more. All my decisions centre around this. Dave Riley's discussion on beyond community gardening is about that. learning how to grow a garden and e.g. make cheese. or keep bees, is about this. Lock the gate is about this.

I would like to hear from anyone who (before or after watching it) would like to build any kind of community. we have a gathering of interested people in a party format this Saturday after dusk in Tarragindi. feel free to join a group of erudite people who are at home in these topics and want positive action.

if you can't make this weekend, just contact me and something can be arranged.

Thanks gabrielle

Radical change is mandatory which our 'leaders' are not doing anything useful about. It's so good to know that many youngsters are really making worthwhile decisions and actions.
