I just got back from the meeting and was surprised with the turnout-- around maybe 40 or more people. Apparently, its advertising was not limited to T.O..

Some activities were organized, along, generously, with tasty cakes and tea.

Thanks to those who organized the event.

Next one is mid-March.

I just read something from Jan Lundberg over at Culture Change that seems, and in light of the recent North African/Middle East turmoil, to lend some added support and rationale to the value of an ecovillage, whether in, or if only as, an investigative, pioneering and/or "bet-hedge", etc., capacity. This is also why I would urge those who may be "casually curious" to consider at least attending the information session.

Quote from the article:

"I don't believe the 'Transition Town' or less-known 'Stair-case slow collapse/catabolic' viewpoints take into account adequately the extreme vulnerability of and to the oil market. The Transition Town and Stair-case adherents' views, hopes, dreams and assumptions may actually refer to social change from civilization collapse, when they may think they are referring to the post-peak oil downslope, or vice versa. But this may make no difference as events may accelerate, and collapse and die-off throw theory and wishes out the window."
