I feel that TW is again moving towards a left-political agenda, and it is not necessary or good for the movement locally. Again, IF we are to build true resilience, we must ALL work together- liberals and conservatives- to do so. Just because most of the people involved in TW are liberal politically, this does not mean that we have to identify the larger group as such...there are so many other avenues in our community for expressing our political opinions, can we please have one group that…Continue

“We are environmentalists now,” he writes, “in order to promote something called ‘sustainability.’ What does this curious, plastic word mean? … It means sustaining human civilization at the comfort level that the world’s rich people — us — feel is their right, without destroying the ‘natural capital’ or the ‘resource base’ that is needed to do so.”
I cringe at the use of the word "sustainability" anymore, and this is why...from an article by Paul Kingsnorth, here:…Continue

Another try to get you an email from TW.
Kate- Just a test to see if you get an email from this post.
I tried commenting but it didn't appear to go through. I'm interested in the re-skilling fair, and have discussed this with Tom Anderson. I'll be out of town March 15, but keep me in the loop. Thanks.
Thanks for letting me know, Kate.
The time won't work for me, unfortunately.
Things are pretty full right now, but I would like to make myself available if you want my input on anything specific: 599-2134.
Yes I would like to help out. Not just TW but anybody who is involved with sustainable activities. I'll try and be there on May 26, and I'll be in touch.
I will be delighted to help with marketing and thank you for asking me. Unfortunately I am out of town on the 25th and and am more than full time busy on an innovation discovery project until June 30. I can possibly give review comments during this period of time. Please keep me in the loop and on your list and I'll jump in when I see an opportunity. Does this work for you?
Thanks Kate. I will keep the chicken group in mind,that would be fun.
