"The Power of Community"

Community members came to the Sustainable Living Center on January 27th,  for the first part of a two part film series, “The Wonders of Oneness."

The film, “The Power of Community,” showed the struggles and hardships that occurred in Cuba when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990 as well as the community power and creativity of the Cuban people during this difficult time. Throughout the film Cubans shared how they transitioned from a highly mechanized, industrial agricultural system to one using organic methods of farming and local, urban gardens.

This film was followed by a special travelogue presentation by international traveler and avid urban homesteader Susan Kroll. Susan is also a humanitarian aid worker, and  she spent three weeks bicycling from garden to garden in Cuba in 2004. She shared with us a photo slide show of what she saw and learned from her experience

The film and discussion provided insights for how we can use the creativity and community power in our very own locality to help us live more sustainably. It was encouraging to see many passionate community members come together to learn and share ideas. 

For more information regarding the film visit the Power of Community's website.

Please join us for the second part of this film series, which will take place on February 17th, 2011, 7-9pm at the Sustainable Living Center. The film is, "Dirt! The Movie," and post-film discussion will feature local farmer Walter Haugen. For more information check out our event page or email Hannah Coughlin (hannahc@re-sources.org).
