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
Don't mess with me you fool! I'm cooking with gas! Here, read this tiny ad:
