Local & Organic Food Fair

The local and organic food fair will be organized in the Helsinki Messukeskus (fair centre) on the weekend 26-29.3,  I got some free tickets so I will be there on Saturday with a couple of friends. Last year we went with some friends too (as paying guests though) and it was interesting but I hope there will be even more food stands this year. Hopefully this is a fair that will grow every year due to more producers and customers. During the same time there will be the spring and garden fair in Messukeskus so I hope to pick up some plants and maybe some seeds for the summer.



Will you be there? What's your expectations?

More talk on collapse (and opportunity)

David Holmgren one of the creators of Permaculture was speaking in a debate in Melbourne last month on the subject "To Collapse Or Not To Collapse: Pushing for economic ruin or building a great transition".

Very inspirational!

Wake Up

My lovely yoga teacher Leta at YogaRocks mentioned the documentary Wake up in our teacher's course and out of curiosity I watched it as you can find it on Netflix. I think it was an interesting documentary mostly because of the main character's search for answers to his spiritual crisis. I like that he explores it through a wide range of people from scientists to mystics and different religions.

One thing that stuck in my mind after watching it was his encounter with the Buddhist monk, Roshi Joan Halifax, as she talks about the Collapse Opportunity, which is interesting also from an environmental point of view.




If there would be a system collapse, how would you react? Are you able to look at the inhumanity in the world today and not go numb?

New month, new possibilities

Been living in a bit of a limbo state for a while, February was not our greatest month. Our car was broken into and stuff stolen and destroyed for one thing. So we've had to deal with the challenge of living on the country-side without a car which has been a but of a challenge. What we learned though is that it is possible, but not without the help from friends, family and colleagues. (Thanks!)

However, little by little the puzzle-pieces are falling together, while other things are falling apart, it still leaves a clear trail of direction for the time being, March-Bring it on, we are ready for you!

Super Juice Me

The upside of being sick is that I gave some extra of time to read and watch things while resting. Yesterday I took time to watch the Super Juice Me documentary, recommended by a friend. It was indeed inspiring. I'm not sure I'm up for doing the whole 28 days living only on juice, but then again I don't have any health problems at the moment. However, the documentary did inspire me to do more juices at home, good thing I got a juicer for Christmas!

Saturday Reading


I've gotten a bit of a flu and decided that today is best to rest, what's better then than to have stumbled upon a really interesting article.

My Saturday reading  recommendation for you;

Why do many reasonable people doubt science?

5 months into no new clothes for a year

I haven't updated you for a while on the no new clothes for a year. Pre and during Christmas I was too busy to even considered that shopping for new clothes would be the thing to do.  I didn't miss any new outfits either, there was apparently enough Christmas outfits in my closet.

However, what I did get second-hand was a few more warm jumpers and I haven't regretted it! They are awesome and the best in winter to keep you warm. I had to do some stiches in all of my finds but after that they were as good as new.

Picture from here. Good post and tips on how to buy less.
