November Activities You May Have Missed

Transition Whatcom sponsors many wonderful events every month. They include co-sponsored author events at Village Books, our monthly movie night, gatherings and talks. In addition our members create and participate in many, many events.  With such a creative, diverse community, it is easy to miss out. The TWOG has decided to provide a recap each month of some of the many events that have brought us together and inspired us during the month.

Hopefully we will see you at some of the TW events in December!

Two upcoming events:  Community Seed Swap-Jan 27 http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/events/community-seed-swap-2013

and Democracy Cafe- Dec 29 http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/events/democracy-cafe

Would the current admin for TW's ning.com system approve these by Sunday night? 

I'll need a functional link from them to send out invites ASAP.

 

Great to read of the diverse events that bring transition neighbors together.

A Farm for the Future” possibly is a film to consider TW sponsoring & bringing to Whatcom.

Here is a link with 50” of film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhVWNwCRpKg ( I've not reviewed it yet.)  Its listed as one of the top ten films voted on by the larger Transition Network. http://transitionculture.org/2012/12/05/the-top-ten-films-as-chosen...
