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
I've also posted this in the Eastern USA forum, I hope it's not a problem, someone please let me know if this is against forum etiquette.
Olivier, in the Montréal area, I know Wen Rolland who is a permaculture advocate and instructor. He is working with the people at "L'oeil du Dragon" in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge and they are establishing a food forest and giving workshops.
Hi Olivier! Our family has just recently moved to Bancroft, Ontario. We are in Zone 3 with our two acres of property having more of a Boreal feel than Carolinian Forest...Transitional Forest Permaculture really. We are just south of Algonquin Park. I am in the process of seeing what we have within the wooded area for forest gardening. It's in the initial stages as we have only been here a few months. We originally come from 7 hours south of Bancroft so the difference in soil and plant/animal species is fascinating! Not much I can find specifically on Northern Canadian Permaculture but we'll fix that! Feel free to contact me if you wish
