“QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.”

Over 60 people attended our Bicycle Treasure Hunt in Guildford on Sunday to celebrate Cycle Instead Bikeweek. We hope everyone had a fun time riding around Guildford, and that it will inspire people to ride more often, especially to school and for shorts trips around the place.
Congratulations to the winning Adult team ‘Next Stop Paris’, the family category winners ‘Chokoz’ and the ‘Black Swans’, who took out the best decorated bikes award for dressing up as pirates.
Following the event, participants enjoyed yummy refreshments, including buns provided by the Guildford Bakery. Thanks!
Bikeweek is running until Sunday the 24th of March. To find another free bike event visit www.transport.wa.gov.au/bikeweek

Transition initiatives in the South West are holding a 2012 gathering in Margaret River in December (Friday 14 to Sunday 16). This is a great opportunity to meet and network with others involved in transition.
There will be open space talks on sustainable initiatives, music, walks, movies and more.
In conjunction there will be the Festival of Forgotten Skills at Fair Harvest Permaculture on Sunday.
