Potluck with Purpose

(Event Sponsored by Transition Albany)
September 3, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - Event Details


The first Tuesday of September (9/3) coincides with the first meeting of the City Council since the summer break. They are asking for public input on, and will discuss enforcement of, the no camping Ordinance on the Bulb (due to happen in October), given that no-one from there has yet been housed. It is an issue some of us would like to be more involved in, so we are starting the potluck HALF AN HOUR EARLY – at 6:30 pm, and some of us may leave before the end. (The item is unlikely to be addressed until 8 or 8:30 pm.)

Meanwhile, Meera is leading the evening, giving everyone plenty of time to get to know each other, with a rhythm circle at the end. Please bring (or improvise!) a rhythm instrument.

6:30 pm is our winter start time, so let’s call this the switch over to every potluck through the winter starting at 6:30 pm.

Your Gut: Key to Your Health

(Event Sponsored by Transition Albany Health Group)
September 29, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - Event Details

Your GutJoin us!

In this class, Nori Hudson helps us understand the workings of our digestive tract.  She will point out what body signs and symptoms to pay attention to and will teach us self care with the help of kitchen table remedies. She will help us determine what life style changes we can make to improve our general health.  We will get copies of a questionnaire to take home to help us begin to see what is going on with our digestive tracts.

Did you know that your saliva is your best mouth wash?  It is! Ever wonder why GERD is so common and what to do about it? What is your stool and urine telling you? Are you one of those who never look?  You should!  Do it at least once before you come to class.  Pay particular attention to consistency, color and odor. These are all clues to the state of health of your gut. (more…)

A Pilgrim’s Progress–Moving from Conserving to Resilience




We’re Loni and TJ, a pair of homeowners who are on the road to resilience. We’d like to share a few things we’ve learned along the way that we hope will be of value to you, or at least have you nodding your head in recognition. And since we’re seeking a new housemate for the next stage of the journey, we’ve included what is essentially an ad for anyone who’s interested in joining us at the table.
