Your local guide to social and environmental issues.

Freshsheet is a free newsletter delivered weekly by email, and occasionally available at selected locations in the Okanagan.
It is a vital information source reporting and interpreting events and trends, covering the story of our region's response to extraordinary challenges and opportunities, and the story of the emergence of a new culture of local resilience.

There is a story emerging in our world that is not being told by our media. It is the story of the relocalization movement that is being precipitated by necessity and possibility.

This transition represents the end of an era of economic and population growth stimulated by an abundant supply of cheap fossil fuels. It also represents the beginning of a change towards a more balanced and thoughtful approach to the business of life, and the life of business.

Together we face a convergence of interrelated global challenges that are forcing us to find better ways of doing things and making our communities work. We are changing our attitudes toward and relationship with energy, climate, food, economics, health, waste, and the environment. At the same time, we are establishing new norms for how we communicate, work, live our lives, and ensure that the goods and services we need are sustainably produced and available from reliable local sources where possible.
Freshsheet Freshsheet is a local information source reporting and interpreting the events and trends of our region, covering the story of our region's response to the extraordinary challenges and opportunities that we face, and the story of the emergence of a new culture of local resilience.

Our emphasis is first to provide information and perspective on the primary challenges of our region, and the second is to spotlight inspiring and visionary signs of people rising to the occasion whether as individuals, neighborhoods, communities, institutions, companies or organizations.

Currently there is no Okanagan publication that gives ample coverage to issues of relocalization, food quality and security, healthy and sustainable business practices, and social responsibility and social justice, or efforts to deal locally with the challenges and opportunities of change, developing food, energy and economic alternatives, and building community. These are among the issues that Freshsheet addresses.
