400 Fruit trees points towards Paradise

A grubby "Paradise Found"? You will read about Transition on this blog quite often. It refers to the movement that is backing away from a fossil-fuel based shallow extreme consumer society towards a sustainable, renewable energy based one with local economies, community and local production being favoured. Globalisation may have some benefits but ultimately is proving to be more trouble than it is worth!

This inspiring six minute film, about the planting of a new orchard in Ireland captures part of the essence of what Transition is all about. Lovely background music too - watch the 400 Fruit Trees project in County Kilkenny and relax just a little bit.
