Transition Cafe offers ideas, inside and out

A drop-in based group meets to talk about sustainability and self-reliance

An electric car got people out of their seats and into the parking lot at last month’s Transition Town Café. Larry and Gail Danby’s non-hybrid electric car, parked outside the Reading Room Café, generated lots of discussion, but there was still plenty of time to hear about plans for a community forest, ideas about bike lanes and street widths, and even to learn to knit.

The public is invited to attend the next Transition Town Café, Sunday, April 1. Drop in to the Reading Room Café, next to Western Foods, anytime between 2–4 p.m.

What better time than April Fool’s Day to discuss how money in our society is a kind of Fool’s Gold.

Come explore ideas and find out how you can get involved in organizing a symposium at the 2012 Sooke Slow Food Cycle (Sept. 23) on rethinking money for local resilience. Other conversations around local, sustainable, ethical ways to build a more self-reliant community are always welcome. And the knitters will be there, ready to share their love of knitting with beginners.
