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.

Economics of Kindness: Dauncey Is The Featured Speaker

Guy Dauncey will be joining us for a presentation on the Economics of Kindness, modelling an alternate view on the generation and distribution of society’s resources. The presentation will be divided into four parts, each followed by an interval for questions, comments and reflections. As usual, we will convene at Char’s Landing with the presentation beginning at 7:00 p.m., so come early and enjoy something from the bar and a little pre-Guy conversation. Guy will have copies of his print materials for sale. There is no admission charge, but the “spittoon” will be available for those wishing to make a contribution to help defray expenses (rent and publicity-Guy has graciously agreed to speak without a fee). If you have any sense that our current economic model may not be serving the general public good, this should be a stimulating talk and discussion!
