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.

Save the Farm

SAVE THE FARM tells the story of the largest urban farm in the United States, a 14-acre organic farm sitting right in the middle of South Central Los Angeles. Over 350 farmers cultivated this farm, which fed their families and community and created an urban oasis for more than 14 years. But when the city sells this public tract of land to a developer in a closed door session, activists and celebrities stage an 11th hour tree sit to try and save the farmers from eviction.

Although this film depicts one local story, filmmaker Michael Kuehnert demonstrates that protecting green spaces and urban farming is a successful solution for local, affordable organic food in cities everywhere and an important building block for a sustainable future.

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!
