Because of a couple of circumstances beyond our control (the Library’s plumbing problems in December and my health issues in January), Transition Ferndale has had no video meeting for the last two months. Both their plumbing and mine are now repaired, so the video series is back on, with a slight change of schedule.

Our previous time slot of third Thursdays has been taken for February. This month, the video will start at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, February 22. This is the fourth Wednesday in February. After this, our regular shedule will be for the third ** WEDNESDAY ** of every month, starting with March 21. We can discuss what videos we should consider for the rest of the year. If you have ideas, please make a comment on this blog or e-mail

This month, the video will be “How to Save the World:  One Man, One Cow, One Planet.” It runs 104 minutes, or about 1-3/4 hours, so discussion after the film will not get started until nearly 9:00. It’s about the general subject of what a sustainable food system could be, and specifically what we can learn about this from the small farmers of India. I don’t know if Peter Proctor, whose ideas about modern bio-dynamics are presented, is going to be considered the new Gandhi for the 21st Century. I guess we will all form our own opinions about that. That’s why we have these meetings.

The DVD is owned by Carol Izant, who will be elsewhere on the evening. I want to thank her for loaning it to us for this presentation.
