Transition Adelaide West Open Air Film Screening: Fresh! The Movie
This footage was taken at a screening of the movie, "Fresh!", at Henley Beach on 26 February 2010. The event was organised by Transition Adelaide West.The event was provided free of charge, with the gracious co-operation of the council of the City of Charles Sturt. The movie, preceded by a couple of trailers and a short film about school gardens, was presented on a projection screen installed for the night at Henley Square. Various stalls were set up to serve organic food and to represent other environmental organisations in South Australia, such as local markets and community gardens.Transition Adelaide West is the first official Transition Towns initiative in South Australia.

Home is Where the Food Is
A beautiful short film made for the 100 Mile Diet Society in Vancouver, BC. From the creator of the film: "The film follows every ingredient of a delicious and simple meal to its source. In the making of this film, I visited a dairy farm, a mill/bakery, and a busy marina, all on Vancouver Island, and all within my 100-mile radius. I also spent time in the kitchen with Tina Biello, a busy working gal who makes time for her food, from growing her own veggies to learning about the production of local food for her favourite family recipes."

Peak Moment TV: "The World of Ecovillages"
Peak Moment 164: The ecovillage movement is gaining a lot of traction and in some surprising forms, says Diana Leafe Christian, the author of Finding Community: How to join an Ecovillage or Intentional Community. Drawing from ecovillages worldwide, she describes many examples of these "human-scaled, full-featured settlements." Ecovillages aim to integrate human activities harmlessly into the natural world and be sustainable indefinitely. To succeed, they need to have multiple centers of initiative (e.g., business enterprises), and support healthy human development (like cooperation and having fun). (www.ecovillageNews.org).
