The Women of Wolfvillehave wanted to examine the foodwe eat for several years.Stirring the Pot is our collectiveresponse to a myriad of food-relatedissues facing the post-modernworld.These days food can be an escape, adiversion or a dedicated pursuit.Today obesity abounds and eatingdisorders are not uncommon in themidst of world hunger. Yet directorEmily Levy-Purdy notes that thetopic of food can provoke humour,song and dance.“One of biggest segments is a dancenumber based on Aretha Franklin’sRESPECT. Our lyrics are all aboutthe joys of DESSERT.”WOW’s oldest member MaryGanong, 93, reminds us that duringthe poverty of the Depression foodwas held in reverence. “I attributethat attitude to my parents. Foodwas made to eat and it was a sin tothrow food out.”The Women of Wolfville is anetwork of over 200 women, about50 of them have been preparingfor this production for the last sixmonths.Stirring the Pot will be staged fourtimes at the Festival Theatre inWolfville, at 8 p.m. from Thursdaythrough Saturday, from March4 - 6, along with a 2 p.m. Saturdayafternoon matinee.Through their annual theatricaladventures, the Women of Wolfvillehave raised over $150,000 forcharity since 2001.

2 The GrapevineFeb 18 - Mar 4, 2010VIEW FROM THE (distant) DYKESYesterday was brilliant. Thesun was shining bright and thesky was one of those blues that werejust so clear that you could almosttaste it, such was its pureness. Theday was hot but there was a coolbreeze coming in off the lake,enough to dry off the sweat thatwas pouring out of me as I mademy way up a mountain peak justoutside of the city of Queenstown(NZ).I love the mountains. There issomething about them that stirs thesoul. Part of it is looking up frombelow and seeing such grandnessfill the sky, reminding you of theimmensity of nature in all of itspower and beauty. But by far myfavourite part is getting up intothem. There is no feeling that quitecompares to hiking up the side of amountain, working your way to thepeak towering above.Nature is beautiful in all shapesand forms. But for me I cansometimes find it hard to payattention to the subtleties. My headspins with thoughts and I can oftenoverlook the little things of beautythat surround us constantly. Not soin the mountains. There they are,AND THE WINNER IS...........Marke Slippe has won the“Name That Room”contest with his entry of StudioZ. for the newly renovated multipurpose room above the Al WhittleTheatre. The contest, which ranthrough the month of January,inspired 240 varied and creativeresponses from 126 people.“Selecting a winner wasn’teasy.” said Nancy Saul-Demers,spokesperson for the PRin your face. Not much subtletythere. Whenever you turn your headwhile walking along the path youare treated to another view, anothervantage point of the surroundingarea.Walking along, all of a suddenyou get a whiff of pine warmedup by the sun, intermingling withwild flowers and damp earth. Oryou step from the shadows of theforest into the heat of the sun in anopen field. Far off you hear the cryof a hawk searching for prey whilejust at your feet cicadas are playingtheir symphony. Reaching with yourhand to pull yourself up, you feelthe rough texture of the rock stillwarm in the late of the day.The senses come alive, almost tothe point of overload. I am thankfulfor these experiences as theyremind me of the splendor thatwe are surrounded by, whetherin the mountains, floating on alake, hanging out in the park, orjust walking down the street. It’sjust a matter of paying attention.Sometimes we need a kick tobe reminded. I’ve been kickedhard…and for this I am thankful.~Adam BarnettCommittee, “There were so manygood ideas. But Marke’s entry meetsall the criteria and speaks clearly tothe multiple opportunities the roomoffers. As well, it recognizes thecontribution of Bill Zimmerman,an Acadia Cinema Co-op founderand volunteer designer and managerof the Co-op’s facilities. Manyother entries tried, with someamazing configurations of the nameZimmerman, to do the same.Green Scene #15There is something otherthan the Olympics going onin Vancouver this week … TheUniversity of British Columbiahas begun construction of whatis claimed to be the ‘greenestbuilding in North America’. Thenew Center for Interactive Researchon Sustainability (CIRS) willdemonstrate the most progressivesustainability concepts on aninstitutional scale and will providean opportunity for academics andindustry stakeholders to collect fielddata on technological & mechanicalsystems, building materials, and theeffects on human behavior that sucha building creates.UBC claims that the new CIRSwill be a net energy producer. withfuel cells, a solar PV array, solar hotwater heaters, ground source heatpumps and a biomass co-generationsystem on site. The building willcollect, store and use rainwater andstorm water, so that it’s providingits own electricity and water needs.The ambitious hope is that therewill be surplus energy producedwhich can be ‘shared’ among othercampus buildings.Studio Z is available to rent bycontacting audreyconroy@ns.sympatico.ca or by calling 902-679-8064. Also, visit www.ZCIRS will also host simulationsand performances to educate thepublic on sustainability as part ofits Group Decision EnvironmentTheatre.The progressive steps thateducational institutions areexercising in the building industryare vital to the developmentof sustainable mainstreamconstruction. It is noteworthy thatseveral other significant educationalinstitutions Simon Fraser University(SFU), the Emily Carr Universityof Art+Design (EC), and theBritish Columbia Institute ofTechnology (BCIT), are sharingexpertise and gleaning educationalresearch throughout the process ofcreation and life of the building. It’scomforting to realize that there arevery real examples of ‘green’ changegrowing among us.Laura MacNutt, M.Arch., B.E.D.S.PIER 101 home designs inc.1-800-476-9514902-791-1963www.pier101.caalwhittletheatre.ca.

That being said, therehas always been something thathas bothered me about peoplederiving a sense of pride solely fromnationality.This year I made a very strong pointto immerse myself in Olympicfever. We have a big screen andprojector here at The Trail Shopbroadcasting the games. I gohome and turn on the games, andI am, for the first time in my life,drinking in as much Olympic spiritsas I can. As I write this, we are fivedays into the games and somethingjust hasn’t been sitting right, and Ithink I can finally articulate whatthat something is.All of the commercials, TV specialsand over all televised coverage of theOlympics is really going overboardtrying to instill a sense of pridein Canadians. Which is fine, upto a point. But this world is allabout balance, and there is a drasticimbalance going on here. Whyaren’t the broadcasting powers thatbe using this global opportunity totry to instill a sense of global pride,and international unity. Why arethere no features on internationalathletes? We could learn so muchabout other countries and theinspiring stories from around theworld. After all, we are a countrymade up of many nationalities andTHAT is something to be proudof too.We certainly do have a lot to boastabout in being Canadian, but that’sFocus on Financials: Two-DayWorkshop by the Acadia Centrefor Social & Business Entrepreneurshipto help you understandfinancial statements, cash flowand financial management.
