Many people got in touch with Transition Network to ask how they could get copies of Rebecca Hosking’s seminal ‘A Farm for the Future’ programme. It can be viewed on Video Google now, but it is proving tricky for us to distribute copies of the film. You may therefore be interested to know that due to popular demand, the programme is being screened for a second time on BBC2 Saturday 4th April at 5.20pm. Set the recorder, and enjoy this wonderful programme a second time.
Here is a great film from Australia about ‘permablitzing’, and about edible backgardening. It features Asha Bee, who is currently working here with Transition Network doing a book about Transition in cities. Enjoy.
You can download a hi-res version for screenings in your local initiative here.
Regular readers will recall from last year my trip to the Positive Energy conference at Findhorn, an extraordinary few days which looked at many aspects of the work starting now in terms of building localised, bioregional infrastructure. Or you may just remember my son’s blog posts which mainly talked about the food, but were hopefully illuminating nonetheless. Well, it was such a success that Findhorn are running a second Positive Energy event, to run between the 3rd and the 9th of October, and have just produced the first publicity for it, which you can download here.
A while ago I wrote about Richard Heinberg’s main presentation at the Findhorn Positive Energy course, which introduced his idea of Resilient Communities Action Plans. His talk has just been posted ontoYouTube and you can see it below;
