Transition Culture takes a break for the ‘summer’
Ah, the English summer. Rain, rain and more rain. It is at this point that I take my leave of you for most of August, to spend some time building sandcastles with my kids on Cornish beaches, visit my newlyborn nephew, check in with family, and try not to think about Transition (well I can try). Was meant to be going to the Big Green Gathering, which has been outrageously policed and health and safety-ed out of existence, a tragic loss. Such a great event. In the meantime, you might enjoy the mashup of the ‘Can Totnes Feed Itself’ work that Geofutures have just put online, SeedtoPlate‘s rather excellent Plot Designer, and, in case you missed it, the story about the German brothel’s low carbon policies. My summer reading material is Alan Weiseman’s The World Without Us and, on Carolyn Baker’s recommendation, Al Siebert’s The Resiliency Advantage. Just finished Mark E Smith‘s autobiography, Renegade, which was very enjoyable. Business as usual will be resumed here at the end of August, by which time there will hopefully be some of the 2009 TED talks for you to enjoy. Have a great summer and thanks for all your support, encouragement, comments and enthusiasm thus far.
