Everything we do must build community. We won't have sustainability unless we learn to care about the common good, and we will only do that when we experience community.

Hello - I've met a couple of you in person and look forward to learning and doing more.

When is the next screening of "In Transition" in the SF Bay area?

This is from http://transitionla.blogspot.com/
If you would like to show "In Transition" in your local community, here's how: Transition Los Angeles owns a copy (perhaps the only copy presently in the LA basin??) with public showing license. Select a date and place to show it, and let us know. You're in charge of A.V. equipment and publicity. We'll send the movie out to your site with a Transition Los Angeles core team member. After the movie, we'll help answer questions and facilitate discussion of the ideas in the film.

In the Transition process we don't show movies, then turn on the lights and send people home. The movie is the excuse to gather people, and provides a context -- a "gathering of the minds", getting people "all on the same page" -- for the real event of the evening: the community discussion. And, after all, that's what Transition is all about.

"In Transition" is a good, upbeat, introductory film. It starts out with an overview of the problems (peak oil, climate change, and the impacts that their simultaneous occurrence is bringing). It gives a brief sense of the history of the Transition movement. But the entire latter portion of the film is the good news: what Transition initiatives are actively doing to solve problems in their local neighborhoods. With film segments provided by Transition initiatives from around the world, it covers many sectors of society, including food, transportation, economics, and education. The film is good material for an awareness-raising event, as well as for invigorating and inspiring your local steering group.

Compostable Toilets

I run an Equine Assisted Growth and Learning facility in Southern California. Our current project is building a compostable toilet out of reclaimed pallets. We are looking to turn all waste into something useful and starting with the restroom at the horse facilities we thought was key. I've researched how it works but have some concerns due to pathogens and such in human waste. Would we be better off using home made horse manure compost and worm castings for our organic vegetable garden and the…See More
