Our monthly Transition/Co-Housing potluck usually includes a gift circle.
What is a gift circle? Here is a site that describes the idea and the practice in as much depth as you want:
So here’s how it goes: Make a dish that you like (enough for three people) and bring it at 7:00 pm. After we’ve eaten, at about 7:45 pm, we make a circle and establish what gifts and needs are present in the circle this month, then match them. (more…)
This year the festival is once again co-sponsored by Transition Albany and we are gratified that so many people are bringing their talents and passions to the festival. Below (courtesy of Alexa Hauser) is an idea of what to expect, starting with booths by people who have been active in Transition Albany projects.
We are still looking for help for the TA booth(s), so please contact Catherine at 528-2261 or transitionalbanyca(at)gmail.com if you can volunteer an hour or two. We will reward you with Time Bank hours if you join the Time Bank! And there will be free compost for Albany residents… (more…)
If you missed Wakana’s Make Your Own Miso presentation on March 30, you get another chance to learn how to do it yourself! Wakana will travel to Berkeley (!) and present at the Ecology Center on Thursday evening, May 22, 2014.
Sponsored by Transition Berkeley and presented as part of Transition Albany Health Initiative Fermentation Series (yeah we’re changing our name), Wakana will teach and entertain the Berkeley crowd. Did I say entertain? Yup. Wakana’s teaching style is very engaging and the folks who attended the March 30 event were glued to paying attention! It was awesome to watch. (more…)
A week after Earth Day, 2014, join us for a major screening of the 2012 documentary Arise, described by Huffington Post as “transformative,” and by the New York Times as a “genuinely felt letter to the world.” While many films about the state of the planet leave one feeling depressed, the film makers have made this an experience that will uplift you and inspire action!
