Prior to moving to Canada in 2007, Angelie Michaud worked for as community development worker with the Philippine government and international funding institutions. Advocated development projects for the poorest communities in the highland region of the Cordillera thru community participation and human rights-based programming.

This method exerts its effort to integrate services in agriculture, education, nutrition and social services as decided by the community independently. In Canada I first worked in a shelter in Calgary assisting people in crisis, homeless, rehab clients, and parolees that changed the face of poverty in a 1st world country. I moved to Fredericton, NB; Victoria, AB, Halifax, NS; briefly in Rimouski, QC and back to Halifax, NS. I am currently working for Scotiabank.

Most often, Lydia Welsh can be found eating, preparing, or thinking about food. She is awe struck by how beautiful food can be, and dreams of connecting people to nature through appreciation for their food. Her interest in food security and food systems began after taking a course on beekeeping and becoming a hobby beekeeper. Halifax became her home after completing a bachelor of education with a focus in environmental education. Through a placement at the Dartmouth North Community Food Centre Lydia met many inspiring people who create positive change in their communities and to our food system. Since then she has connected with countless beautiful, kind, and creative people, and she looks forward to meeting many more.

Tiny houses and sustainable communities

BY JIMMYZ HIRST
@ VOL 25 ON FEB 28, 2018

Jimmy Hirst has been traveling the world researching Tiny Housing, sustainable communities (Eco Villages) for the past five years and looking at progressive living ideals. He believes we now have the need, the technology (like with Blockchain), and the consciousness to facilitate a shift in the western living paradigm, to help bring the mainstream population into embracing more sustainable and connective communities. He believes it’s time to reinhabit the village, holistically regenerating human and natural values, to last for generations to come.
