Climate Circles Reunion Saturday August 1 @3-5pm Willow Park Wolfville
Come join us for a relaxed conversation and catch up on all the news! Climate Circles met on Zoom for awhile before it dwindled to the Transition group, which has completed its revitalizing of Transition Wolfville Area. Transition Wolfville Area has been meeting in a small group and working on some projects and we want to share our ideas with you. We've also heard of other groups working away in their own way too. Fantastic! The Climate Circle was such an amazing gathering of people wanting change and we haven't stopped- lets connect again and keep the momentum happening!
There will be social time, time to share updates, and if desired, we can break into conversation groups as we used to do.
We will be following social distancing.
a chair and/or a blanket (these are great tools to help distance, so please do bring them)
a mask in case you can't distance
snacks just for your family group/bubble who come with you. Sadly, no food sharing this time around...
We would love to see you there! ... See MoreSee Less

Does anyone know someone I could ask about non-environmentally-toxic pest control for sweet potatoes in our area? It is difficult to research because there are so many pests that can cause the damage we’re seeing (a few large, shallow grooves bored into tubers. Larvae of many scarabaeid and elateriform beetles seem to cause the same damage)

We would like to offer a workshop on making your own rain barrel and are currently trying to source 55 gallon barrels. We'd like to recycle some that have already been used rather than use new plastic, so if you know of any companies that would donate them or sell for cheap, please let us know. ... See MoreSee Less

A series of talks from Schumacher College.Schumacher College presents a new online earth talk series; ‘The Joy of Six’. The series will feature six inspirational and informative online earth talks with our leading contributors including Chris Johnstone, Jonathan Dawson in conversation with David Holyoake, Rupert Read and Skeena Rathor, Jenny Mackewn, Manda Scott and Terry Irwin. Each presenter is talking about their specialist subject but in relation to Covid 19 and the global crisis. This is the main theme that will link the whole series but from six different perspectives. Each perspective is connected to our Schumacher values.
Through this series we hope to inform and educate on subjects such as personal resilience, eco-spirituality and conscious evolution. Our time is now to seize the opportunity to make a real difference. Please join us for the joy of six over the next six consecutive Wednesday evenings.
