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.

Dean Kalyan - OCCUPY VICTORIA | PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY OF VICTORIA

I covered the People’s Assembly of Victoria (Occupy Victoria) yesterday. Organizers amended the title of Occupy Victoria to the People’s Assembly of Victoria out of respect for the First Peoples of Victoria and Vancouver Island. After some welcoming messages and a recital of the Occupy Wall Street manifesto, the majority of us set off to march through the streets of downtown Victoria, eventually arriving at the Provincial Legislature and then back to Centennial Square.

I encourage everyone to check out filmmaker Velcrow Ripper’s blog http://occupylove.org where he is posting updates, photos and videos from the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Below are are some highlight images from the Assembly and march in Victoria BC.

Enjoy!
