Hi,

I'm working on a documentary film project on permaculture/transition/sustainable living, and I'm planning to road trip in New England and Eastern Canada in the next few weeks/months. I'm looking for people with inspiring and interesting stories of transition, people who are "doing it". I'm not looking at anything specific, just a variety of ideas, solutions, initiatives - big or small - that have the ability to inspire.

At the moment I'm particularly interested in anything that has to do with cold climate, and how to spend the winter in a more sustainable way. I'd also consider revisiting the same locations later on during the summer/fall if it makes sense.

You can take a look at this website for a better idea of what I'm trying to do : www.possible.org

Thanks!

Olivier

That sounds wonderful! I think our story maybe isn't quite so exciting yet, we just bought our property and haven't done too much to make it sustainable yet (oh, but the plans are mighty!), but I'd like to put a plug in for Maine! Try to get to the Common Ground Fair in September, if you've never been - there's lots of inspiration to be had there. There's a great mixture of older farmers, both organic and not, and a younger generation trying new things...

It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
