t’s a simple question. How far do you have to go to get healthy food?

Transition Prince Rupert, in British Columbia, Canada, launches its website today. Nothing extraordinary about that you might say. But the process that led to it, and its contents, are a story worth telling. The interview I did recently with Lee Brain, a young man who is one of the group’s founders, was one of the most inspiring I have yet published here at Transition Culture.

Urban resource consumption and waste disposal is widely seen as the root cause of many of the world’s environmental problems. Since the industrial revolution the process of urbanisation has become ever more resource-intensive, significantly contributing to climate change and to the loss of soil carbon, the natural fertility of farmland, and the world’s biodiversity.

Cities have developed resource consumption and waste disposal habits that show little concern for the environmental consequences.
Nitrogen is necessary for life on earth to continue and the nitrogen cycle is one of the most important nutrient cycles in terrestrial ecosystems .

However, when present in excess, nitrogen poses risks both to the environment and human health.
