The committee and members of Oakridge Community Garden would like to invite everyone out to the garden on Hallowe’en day to see the spooky decorations.

After dark, there will be lights and glowing pumpkins, so stop by after sunset.... that is..... if you are feeling particularly fearless.

  Full-time zero-carbon electricity with Compressed Air Energy Storage  

Wednesday November 18, 7:00 p.m. 

It is possible to replace coal with low or zero carbon electricity in Alberta and Saskatchewan using existing technology: Compressed Air Energy Storage. The generation of wind and solar electricity now costs less than all other new electricity. Its generation, however, depends entirely on the availability of adequate sunlight and wind. Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) solution can cost effectively manage renewable power generation so emissions-free electricity can meet real-time demand.

  Move Your Chi (MyChi) with Jane Sponier  

 

Wednesday 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. via Zoom

“This class is focused on development of inner energy; first working on sensitivity, slowness, visualization, mindfulness, coordination and breath. For example, we will start with a simple wrist circle, continue to elbow and shoulder and finally coordinate it with the sensation of expanding, contracting, sinking and rising - all in one single circle. This is extremely useful for any tai chi practitioner but also amazing for personal development of any kind. You will feel such body awareness you might be surprised, it will also improve your ability to concentrate!” - Jane
