Inhabit

Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

Burning Water

When the Lauridsen family of Valhalla Farm, near Rosebud, Alberta, discovers that the strange bubbles in the water it relies on for bathing, drinking and farming is full of chemicals—and that the tap water can be lit on fire —it begins a fight for the truth behind an unsettling phenomenon that has been occurring in towns across North America. BURNING WATER looks at the financial and social impact on one family whose prototypically Albertan dream of living off the land puts it at odds with the ideals of a “New West” where the land is dominated by oil and gas wells rather than herds of cattle, and the provincial government seems to favour energy royalties over the farmers.

Dear Friends of SJS,
Victoria Friends pf Cuba announces that this month's Social Justice Film Night has been MOVED FROM THURSDAY TO FRIDAY, MAY 22
This coming FRIDAY, MAY 22 we present:


This film is inspired by an extraordinary true story.  It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families.  Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person.  As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

[evoz] a meassage from local STOP C-51 organizers

May 30th is the event against C-51. It is the third Canada-wide event. We are having a funeral for our rights and freedoms. Everyone's going to wear black  & it will be great. An ally will be making a coffin as well. I don't really like that word, ally, because it sounds pretty militarist but, I can't think of a better one at this moment. Here is the event information: https://www.facebook.com/events/907337739324786/     The procession will start at Centennial Square on Saturday May 30th in the evening, at 6:00pm. This is the day of the third Canada-wide protest against Bill C-51. WE ASK THAT ALL FUNERAL ATTENDEES WEAR BLACK (please notify the Organizing Team if you do not have access to black clothing by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will organize something for you!) We will have many props, so we won’t spoil the surprise, but there will certainly be a coffin. We will take...
