Help Shape BC's Future

BC Leadership 2011

Help Shape BC's Future

Both of BC's major political parties are choosing new leaders in the near future. This is a special moment in history, a moment when the choices we individually and collectively make will have a profound impact on the future of the province.

The choice of leaders for the two major political parties could determine the envelope of what is…

Permaculture Project in Mission anyone?

I just received this email from the Vancouver Permaculture Meetup group. I don't personally have the time to take something like this on but I think it is an exciting proposal. Just thought I would pass it on in case anyone knows anyone. . . I hope it happens.

 

 James Anthony's idea:…

Wed. Nov. 24th, 2010 The Giant is on the move!

Peak and Climo, the two heads of Giant will entertain and evoke at the Bell Irving Hatchery (KEEPS) tomorrow afternoon - 4p.m. I'll tell Giant's story hoping to initiate "connections" to climate change, and peak oil among the audience, a group of teachers who are involved with the Ecological School Program in SD 42. There might be a campfire, but I'm told if its too chilly we'll be inside. Jack

I write a lot and then I get on a computer and find that my best writing comes from responses to other people's posts or random blurbs~ I now know that is what channeling is~ I pay attention to the synchronicities closely now and know when I am on the right track.

The souls journey is never over
