To start, I’d like to share with you an 11-minute video called “The People in My Neighbourhood” by Mariko Uda and winner of the 2011 Transition Toronto Film Contest. It’s a perfect example of what happens when you combine Permaculture with Positive Visioning.

Is 350 a Ridiculous Goal for the Keene Area?

From the Keene Transition Movement Website, By Katy Locke

Is it ridiculous to stabilize our global climate by reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere to 350 ppm?… If so, then LET’S GET RIDICULOUS!

One way to “get ridiculous” is to participate in Keene’s effort as part of the Transition US 350 Home & Garden Challenge inviting us all to take action toward sustainability. The Transition Keene Task Force has set a goal to register 350 actions in the Keene area representing the 4 main focus areas – growing food, conserving water, saving energy, building community.  Find out more about this goal for Keene.
