Transition Cafe back at Gibsons' Wheatberries July 31
The last Transition Cafe of the summer is to be held at the Gibsons Wheatberries on July 31 from 6-8pm.
Activities will include an update on the SCiT and its initiatives and a showing of a short video from Mortal Coil Media to stimulate a discussion of sustainable forest management practices. The forest offers so much more than raw logs for export. Come to discover and discuss the long-term importance of a healthy forest ecosystem.
Transition Streets Pilot Project
Thank you to everyone who responded to the Transition Streets Pilot Project. We were delighted to receive interest in all relevant geographical areas of the Coast. At press time, it looks like the first neighbourhood to get active is Langdale. Most potential neighbourhood hosts requested additional time to recruit more neighbours over the summer, so applications for the pilot project will remain open until September. We are very grateful to the individuals and groups who have been giving local input into our Transition Streets work manuals.
