Follow-up activities for Film Series

Dear Film Series attendees,

Thanks for participating in our fabulous Films of Hope and Vision Film Series! At our potluck on June 18, we talked about ways to learn more and take action. Please read on for information and group contacts. If you’d like to be on the list for a group, just drop the group leader a email message.

We hope to see you at our next Film Series (tentatively scheduled for September). And we’ll let you know about any other activities of interest!

Gardening/Foot Production/Slow Food
The group shared interests, including lawn conversion, fruit trees, apartment gardening, agroecology, tinkering, and information sharing. We are considering an intergenerational gardening project in San Jose that would give us a chance to be involved with gardening and local community members. If you’re interested in keeping in touch on this project or other related activities that come up, please write to William Mutch at permifree AT yahoo DOT com.

Learning More About Transition
Motivated by the film series, about 10 of us will start reading the “The Transition Handbook” as a book group in July. An email message will soon go out to those who have signed up. The group will be co-chaired by Bart Anderson, Paul Heft and William Mutch of Transition Palo Alto. If you are interested (and haven’t signed up already), please write to Bart Anderson at bart AT cwo DOT com.

If your summer is already full, don’t worry. Another group will be starting later in the fall. Also, the “Transition Handbook” can be ordered through local book stores. We’ll probably put in a group order through one of them, to get a discount. Other ways to learn about Transition:

Transition Handbook: http://transitionculture.org/shop/the-transition-handbook
Transition Palo Alto: http://transitionpaloalto.org

Film Series and Community Building
We talked about starting a new film series on Energy/Transportation in September. To do so, we’ll need to identify and preview films. Our first group assignment is to work on ideas. Then we’ll get together starting in July to preview and select films. Also, group members expressed an interest in activities over the summer to continue community building. If you have ideas or would like to help with film series planning or other activities, please write to Barbara Weinstein ( barbara AT ontrk DOT com ).

All the best,
The Films of Hope and Vision Planning Team
