AV Transitions Monthly Meeting/Screening

We have had to postpone the Seed Saving Workshop, so we got a license to show the following:


This is an interesting narrative from a man who works at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, and the adaptations he’s made to bring his way of living more into harmony with what he believes in relation to carbon levels and climate disruption. As usual, the public is most welcome and there is no charge for admission, though anyone wishing to make a donation to help defray costs for the venue and the film license is more than welcome to do so. The agenda for the meeting, starting at 6:00 p.m. will be available early next week. Film starts promptly at 7:00 p.m., this all taking place at Char’s Landing on Wednesday, April 18, 2018.

Do Something!

There are many who are alarmed about housing conditions, about poverty stats, about derelict buildings, about stunted economic activity in our community and about a sense of social malaise that seems to permeate much of the discussion of events in Port Alberni.

Here is a gentleman who has levered resources to deal with much of what ails us, coming to share his experience and methods. Please make the effort to come hear Shaun speak at Echo, and for those inclined to constructive action, check out the workshop at Tseshaht Admin the following morning.  The diversity of the sponsors says something about the possibilities.
